Why We Are Yet To Pay Emiliano Sala’s Transfer Fee – Cardiff City

Plane Carrying Emiliano Sala, Cardiff New Striker Goes Missing
 

Cardiff City Chairman, Mehmet Dalman, has said the club are still gathering information over the £15million fee due to Nantes, for the transfer of Emiliano Sala.

Sala had signed for City in a club-record move from Nantes last month, but was killed when the private plane carrying him crash-landed in the English Channel.

Nantes have already requested the first instalment of payment for Sala’s transfer fee.

Speaking to BBC Sports Wales, Dalman insisted the Welsh club must do their own due diligence, before deciding how to proceed.

He said: “Of course, if we are contractually obliged to pay them then of course we will.

“We are an honourable club. But if we are not – and there are some anomalies in that – then surely you would expect me as the chairman and guardian of this club’s interests to look into that and hold our position. That is what we are doing.

“We are still in the process of gathering information and that process will be ongoing. And when we reach a level where we have enough information, I am sure we will sit down with Nantes and move forward.”
