French club Nantes have referred their dispute with Cardiff City over the transfer fee of Emiliano Sala to FIFA, football’s governing body confirmed on Wednesday.

The clubs are wrangling over payment of the fee following the tragic death of Argentinian Sala in an airplane accident in January.

Nantes referred the matter to the sport’s global body after the Welsh side declined to pay an initial six million euros ($6.8 million) of the 17 million euros ($19.4 million) total fee.

“We can confirm that we have received yesterday evening (Tuesday) a claim from FC Nantes against Cardiff City in connection with the transfer of Emiliano Sala,” a FIFA spokesperson said.

“We are looking into the matter and consequently we have no further comments at this stage.”

Sala died in plane crash on his way from Nantes to Cardiff to join his new club.

Pilot David Ibbotson, 59, was flying the 28-year-old Argentine striker Sala to the Premier League outfit on January 21 when the accident happened.

Cardiff said they wanted to wait for the results of the investigation into the accident before transferring the fee.

Britain’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said Monday the plane carrying Sala did not have a commercial licence. (Guardian)
