Emiliano Sala: Nantes threaten Cardiff City with legal action over payment

Argentine striker Emiliano Sala had just completed a dream move to EPL side Cardiff City from FC Nantes

Nantes are threatening to take legal action against Cardiff City if the Premier League side refuses to stump up the Emiliano Sala club-record transfer fee.

The Premier League club were shocked to receive a formal letter from Nantes on Tuesday asking for payment within 10 days.

According to the source, the first instalment of the 17-million-euro ($19.3 million) deal for the Argentine striker has yet to be paid, despite the transfer being finalised before the accident.

The BBC have reported that the transfer was set to be paid in instalments over three years, but Cardiff have withheld the first payment until they have received satisfactory documentation.

However, Cardiff are yet to pay the first installment with the club still mulling over the details of the contract especially regarding recent developments surrounding the tragic incident.

Alphabet stock slips despite revenue increase of 23% in 2018
Analysts polled by FactSet were expecting earnings per share of $10.86, or a profit of $7.6 billion, on revenue of $38.9 billion. Cloud bets are likely to start paying off in the coming years, said Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives.

The 28-year-old striker was on board the Piper Malibu N264DB plane which went missing over Guernsey on January 21.

Sala's plane disappeared into the deep blue waters while en route to Cardiff after saying his final goodbye to his former team-mates.

Cardiff were reportedly shocked by the timing of the letter from Nantes, as recovery workers are now in the process of trying to excavate the body of someone from the crash plane he was in.

French club Bordeaux are also entitled to a cut of the fee, thought to be 50% - Sala was on their books from 2012 to 2015 before joining Nantes.

A recovery crew eventually found the aircraft in the ocean, with a body said to be visible in the wreckage.
