Written by thereachfm on March 25, 2019
Football club Cardiff are set to tell FIFA that the £15 million deal they agreed to pay Nantes for Emiliano Sala has become null and void after he died in a plane crash.
The 28-year-old Argentine forward was killed when the small plane carrying him came down in the Channel on January 21, two days after he completed his transfer from the French Ligue 1 side.
Sources close to Cardiff say the agreement stipulated that Welsh and French football authorities had to confirm Sala’s transfer adding that this had not happened before Sala died.
Meanwhile, the club says the transfer agreement between Cardiff and Nantes is subject to several conditions adding that if any was not satisfied, the contract would be deemed null and void, with no payment due.
