Grim.

But in another way maybe the best of a bad situation if the body(s) can be recovered.
Absolutely, give the family closure.

As much as I dislike them you can't blame Cardiff, he's not officially been found yet and there's still an investigation underway so of course you aren't going to pay yet. If legal action is really being threatened then it's poor all round.

It just seems massively disrespectful by both parties, so soon after the event and still with no body found.

It’s a ‘BBC understands’ story, isn’t it? Therefore it’s only leaked because somebody wanted it public.

Cleary it shouldn’t have made the public domain just yet but I dare say that the question was raised as soon as it was confirmed that Sala was onboard that flight.

Taking the emotion out of it what difference does it make if they haven’t found the body yet? Cardiff owe Nantes the transfer fee, end of.

Sounds harsh and not suggesting Cardiff are trying to pull a fast one but a deal’s a deal with regard to financial side of this tragedy

Knew the money side of things would raise its head, no need for either club to go public about it

Agree with the above. If you bought a house, signed contract etc, and it caught fire or something like that before you moved in, you are still obliged to pay aren’t you.

But yes, the timing sucks.

Let's make no mistake. I think Cardiff are more than willing to pay but Nantes maybe should have a little bedside manner in what is an absolute tragedy. It's an abnormal event, whereby the players family should be the top of concern. The business side will of course be settled in due course. It could be something as simple as Cardiff awaiting for the insurance paying out.

That isn't Nantes problem but being French, you would think they might take reference from their own National slogan;

Liberté, égalité, fraternité

Especially the 'fraternité' part. "Friendship and mutual support in a group."

It may have been better if they simply released a statement along the lines of "We're assisting Cardiff City with the settlement of the transfer fee and liaising with the family of Emiliano in what is a very difficult time. As football is a world family, we offer and extend our help to our football family. Liberté, egalité, fraternité."

A smidge of empathy goes a long way. Business or not.

tbf, Cardiff have said they recognise they owe the money and have no intention of not paying it, they're just questioning the timing of Nantes' request

No.

We have ‘bought’ a house before. Exchanged contracts, had a completion date and even a move in date. Never got the keys. Sellers were in negative equity and couldn’t pay the mortgage off.

Nope. Decided not to go down that route. If they didn’t have the money to pay off the mortgage what chance of getting any money off them...
