    Fifa has given Cardiff City and Nantes until 5 September to reach a settlement in the dispute over the payment of Emiliano Sala's £15m transfer fee.

    Sala, 28, was Cardiff's record signing, announced in January.

    The Argentine striker died in a plane crash while travelling from France to join his new club.

    Fifa sent a letter to both clubs stating that should they miss the deadline, they will issue its own ruling, which is subject to appeal.

    "We can confirm that a letter was sent to the parties on behalf of the chairman of the players' status committee," Fifa said.

    "Please understand we cannot comment further at this stage."

    Sources at Cardiff confirmed receipt of the letter from Fifa.

    Fifa president Gianni Infantino has previously said he hoped the two clubs would be able to reach an agreement themselves.

    Cardiff have refused to make interim payments, claiming the deal was not legally binding.

    The Bluebirds told world football's governing body that Nantes' conditions for completion of the deal were not fulfilled and Sala was not registered as a Premier League player.

    Nantes claim the required paperwork was completed.

    Sala and pilot David Ibbotson, 59, crashed in the English Channel on 21 January.

    The footballer's body was recovered from the wreckage of a crashed plane but Mr Ibbotson, from Crowle, North Lincolnshire, has still not been found.

    Sala was exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide prior to the fatal crash, a report has revealed.

    Club penny pinching over 5 million, the boy has fucking died. They can afford the fee 10 times over, happy enough to parade him as a bluebird vs Bournemouth but quick to take the memorial down when it was time to pay up

    I don't think the club can afford 50 million.... Besides, if McKay was working on behalf of Nantes, which I think it appears he was, and he arranged the flight, which appears to be possibly illegal, surely that affects whether we should pay?

    If it comes that neither club has any responsibility for the accident, the morally appropriate thing would be to pay half, I personally think

    I don't blindly support the club in everything they do. You are happy they are looking for loopholes to avoid paying out when they were happy to Annouce him as a player.

    I might be way out of line for being the first to suggest this but I can't help feeling that maybe they should give the money to the families?

    Why exactly do you support this club? Seems that you can’t stand any aspect of it.

    Or are you just a whinging cunt?

    They earned over 150 million from promotion and PL money let's not pretend we are skint. Oh wait we already did that in the summer with a net spend of 5 million

    Indeed, this is being lead by the respective insurance companies of the clubs & will eventually be settled by them.
