Cardiff City seems to be not going to be the transfer fee for the crashed striker Emiliano Sala to pay to FC Nantes. The Premier League club would FIFA want to argue that the transfer of the Argentinian invalid.
Several British media report Monday that the contract of Sala at Cardiff City has been rejected by the Premier League because it does not meet the rules of the day. The attacker died before a new contract drawn up.
The club from Wales would, therefore, find that the transferdeal with FC Nantes is not legally valid.
The French had a month ago lodged a complaint with FIFA because Cardiff City refused to make the first payment of 5 million pounds (6 million euro). The total transfer fee for Sala is 15 million pounds (17.5 million euros).
Cardiff City has until april 3 to respond.

Cardiff offers no comment
A spokesman from Cardiff wants in conversation with the British news agency Press Association, no substantive response. “The club knows that the FIFA no later than april 3, a response of our will and act we to. Furthermore, we have no comment.”
A spokesman of FC Nantes, announces to the Daily Telegraph that the French club “all the necessary paperwork has been submitted for the transfer of Sala. Nantes has complied with all the rules of the FIFA.”
“We have no information about the registration of Sala in the Premier League, but that would be a problem for Cardiff, not for us.”
The 28-year-old Sala came on 21 January to life in a plane crash over the Channel. He was on his way from Nantes to Cardiff.
