Cardiff deny Sala Legally
Sala Contract Not Legally Binding, Cardiff to Tell FIFA
Cardiff City will tell FIFA that the contract to sign Emiliano Sala from Nantes was not legally binding.
The Welsh club have refused to pay the £15m transfer fee for the striker, who was killed in a plane crash two months ago.
Nantes have complained to FIFA, and Cardiff have until April 3 to respond.
Cardiff will argue that Sala’s contract had been rejected by the Premier League and was therefore ‘null and void’.
He had been unable to sign a revised deal before his death on January 21.
Cardiff will also claim that further contract clauses – proposed by Nantes – had not been met.
