Emiliano Sala: Nantes Request Transfer Fee For Sala From Cardiff City
French club Nantes have demanded payment from Cardiff City over the £15m transfer of Emiliano Sala.
It is understood the Ligue 1 club are demanding an initial payment of £5m is transferred immediately.
The plane carrying Sala – and pilot David Ibbotson – from Nantes to Cardiff went missing on January 21, with Guernsey Police undertaking a search for the Piper Malibu aircraft in the following days.
The transfer fee is due to be paid in instalments over three years.
Dalman says Cardiff will allow an ongoing process to be completed before dealing with the payment to Nantes.
“The only thing I can say, because it is a sensitive subject, is that I confirm that what you are saying [that Cardiff haven’t paid the first instalment] is true,” he told L’Equipe.
