Cardiff City’s owner Vincent Tan has revealed he is considering taking legal action against former manager Malky Mackay.
Mackay and Tan aren’t on the best of terms following the unceremonious sacking of the promotion winning manager and the owner has revealed he is considering taking him to court.
The Mirror has reported Tan is allegedly furious that summer signing Andreas Cornelius transfer fee a club record £7.6 million could rise to significantly higher with add ons.
Cornelius has featured only seven times for the Bluebirds and has a further five years remaining on his contract estimated at roughly £11.7 million.
Mackay has still to receive his compensation from the club but has revealed he isn’t planning on taking legal action against his former employer, having sighted the fact he didn’t want to put his managerial career on hold for it.
A source close to the Malaysian businessman is reported to have said: "Mackay was instructed to go out and buy a Bentley……He got the funds to get some top quality international players, but Mr Tan feels Mackay bought a Toyota instead."
Tan is said also to be unhappy with the fee paid for Gary Medel a figure that could rise to £15 m.illion Cardiff’s current expenditure for the season is £38 million but with the alleged ad-ons the transfer fees could quickly keep rising.
New manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, though, is set to be backed in the market and has already secured the signing of Magnus Eikrem from Dutch club Heerenveen.
