Almost two years have passed since América sold Cecilio Domínguez to Independiente after the player was relegated to Miguel Herrera’s bench.

Despite falling down the pecking order, the Eagles still commanded a very hearty fee from the Argentines.

However, it’s been incredibly stressful for the América board since then, as Independiente still owe a massive debt of $5m to the club, despite having sold Domínguez to new MLS outfit Austin FC.

Now, according to sources close to América, Independiente requested to have until the end of the year to pay the debts, to which the Eagles responded with a resounding no.

It should be noted that an agreement had already been reached between both institutions, stating that the payment would be in three instalments of $1.6m.

The matter is back to being complicated once again after Independiente failed to make the first payment.

Now, the azulcremas are thinking of taking the complaint to FIFA again, waiting for an exemplary sanction.
