Cardiff will have to pay Nantes for striker Emiliano Sally.
Despite losing a player, the Welsh club is obliged to pay for the transfer because it is registered with FIFA, said lawyer Aleksandra Cohen.
"The transfer agreement is considered valid after being registered by FIFA.
Cardiff will have to pay Nantes 17m euros, despite losing the player.
As far as insurance is concerned, Nantes has just designed it. The question is whether the insurance is valid after the transfer and whether it has managed to insure the Cardiff player.
If so, the Welsh club can rely on full compensation for the value of the transfer from the insurance company. In any case, someone will have to pay 17 million euros, "Cohen said.
