It's a tough situation. If the insurance won't pay out because contracts were legally incomplete should Cardiff just write off 15 million plus out of sympathy for a tragic death? It's a horrible corner to be put in but you can see why this is happening. If proved the paperwork was all complete then they have to pay.

The question over who pays what was always going to happen in the aftermath. I'm not surprised or outraged by this in my opinion it was expected. You can't say that because they are challenging the player and the grief they had at the time doesn't exist.

On account of nothing really I have always thought that Cardiff were a pretty objectionable club and this is doing nothing to change this view.

The fact that all of this is leaking out of a 'Cardiff source' much as with McKay giving interviews does suggest that something is very smelly about the whole deal.

If the first instalment is already due (at least on the face of it), then Nantes will naturally be invoicing it and following it up like any other 5 m. euro debt.  Even more vigorously if they fear Cardiff will be looking for loopholes.

My expectation would be that no payment by Cardiff City will be made for months -just possibly even for years or at all.  The completely unexpected nature of the tragic circumstances will inevitably lead to an extremely contentious and protracted legal "pass the parcel" situation between numerous parties.

Putting the legal and moral aspects to one side, this seems very short-sighted by Cardiff.

They will want to buy again at some point, there will of course be clubs willing to take their money but Cardiff may have made it difficult for themselves here.

I don't see how. Will a club or player think twice about signing in case the player dies and they won't get paid? Contracts are huge, they cover every eventuality and some. What is the point in having a contract otherwise? There must be a part of it that Cardiff feel hasn't been completed. They can't just pay that much money out of sentiment. It's the horrible side to a tragedy that needs to get sorted and may not feel comfortable with many people
