Nantes have consulted lawyers to explore legal options to ensure Cardiff City pay the transfer fee for Emiliano Sala, a source close to the French club revealed Wednesday.

Wales reported the French club have threatened legal action if the £15 million (NZ$28m) is not paid within the next 10 days.

The plane was only discovered on Sunday and the Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) has not identified the body spotted in the wreckage, which was found on the seabed.

The Argentine, 28, had been due to take part in his first training session with his new team Cardiff City the next morning following the completion of a £15m ($19.4m) transfer to the English top flight club.

Although Nantes were entitled to the first instalment of Sala's fee by now, Cardiff have been left surprised by the demand given the circumstances and the timing.

Lakers Pull Out Of Anthony Davis Trade Talks Amid ‘Outrageous’ Requests
The Pelicans need to wait until they can get a player with that clear All-NBA ceiling before pulling the trigger. Davis deemed the deal worthy of a double tap on instagram, but apparently it wasn't enough for the Pels.

It is understood that the agreement between the clubs was to process the payments in instalments over three years.

Sala was on board the plane with pilot Dave Ibbotson.

Cardiff believe there are a series of questions that still need to be answered, especially about the ownership of the Piper Malibu aircraft, which crashed North of Guernsey on January 21.

Bordeaux will also receive a percentage of the fee, thought to be 50 per cent, because Sala played for them from 2012-2015 before signing for Nantes.
