French club Nantes are preparing a complaint to FIFA against Cardiff, who haven’t yet paid for deceased striker Emiliano Sala’s transfer.

Recall, on January 21, the plane with Sala on board crashed over the English Channel. This happened a couple days after Emiliano joined Cardiff for £15 million.

All recent days, Nantes have been demanding from Cardiff to fulfil their obligations and allocate the first tranche for the 28-year-old Argentine, but in Wales, they are in no hurry to do that.

Cardiff prefer to wait until the investigation of the incident will be completed. First of all, the Bluebirds are interested in whether pilot David Ibbotson had a valid commercial license to fly.

You can also understand Nantes because now the French club boses owe 50 percent of the proceeds from Sala’s transfer to Bordeaux, from which the player was bought in 2015.

According to The Independent, Nantes will make a formal complaint to FIFA against Cardiff in the near future. Whatever the decision of the officials, the losing party will be able to apply to the Sports Arbitration Court, therefore proceedings run the risk of a long delay.
