Cardiff City ordered to pay first installment of the late Emiliano Sala transfer fee




Cardiff City has been ordered to pay the first installment of the late Emiliano Sala transfer fee.

The installment, which amounts to €6m, is part of the overall €15m transfer fee agreed prior to the footballer’s untimely death in a plane crash in January of this year.

Cardiff City and Sala’s original team, Nantes, had been locked in a legal dispute over the fee. Cardiff had argued that Sala ‘was not officially their player’ at the time of his death, stating that the agreed fee was void.
