The BBC is reporting that Ligue 1 side Nantes are demanding the first of three identical payments — each expected to be roughly $6.5 million — from Cardiff City “within 10 days,” otherwise they will take legal action against the Premier League side.

The report also cites a source at Cardiff as saying the club intends to honor the transfer agreement, which is set to be for a club-record $19.5 million, once they have “all the facts.”

Cardiff are reportedly “surprised” that Nantes have made such demands while attempts to recover the bodies of Sala and pilot David Ibbotson are still ongoing. The Air Accident Investigation Bureau said on Monday that “one occupant is visible amidst the wreckage” at the bottom of the ocean just off the Channel Islands.

Bordeaux are also due a cut — reportedly 50 percent — of the transfer fee as part of the agreement to transfer Sala to their French counterparts in the summer of 2015. Nantes paid an initial fee of just over $1 million.

Cardiff, Nantes reach agreement over extension for Sala payment.
Cardiff City and Nantes have reached an agreement to delay payment of the first installment of the £15-million fee for deceased striker Emiliano Sala until Feb. 27, according to the Press Association. The Welsh club agreed to part with a club-record sum for Sala on Jan. 19 but, after the player had said farewell to his former Nantes teammates and friends in the French village of Carquefou, he was killed when a plane bringing him to Cardiff crashed into the English Channel. Pilot David Ibbotson, the only person to accompany Sala on the flight, is still missing. Cardiff City are contractually obliged to pay the transfer fee despite Sala never playing for the club.
