In June 2020 Norwegian player agent Atta Aneke paid David Datro Fofana’s mother 20 000 euro, according to a voice message. Fofana later signed for Molde FK for free. In their submission to CAS, Molde accuses Abidjan City of ‘extortion’.
In December Molde sold Datro David Fofana to Chelsea for a reported 13 million euro, a new record for a transfer from a Norwegian club. But was Fofana Molde’s player? Or did the club steal the attacker from his Ivorian club Abidjan City FC?
