Kirsan Ilyumzhinov extended the deadline 

The FIDE president agreed to extend the deadline for the reigning world champion to decide his participation in the World title match. This has been announced by Emil Sutovsky on his Facebook page. According to the ACP president, he had: "a very constructive and fruitful conversation with FIDE President, Mr. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. After hearing all the arguments, FIDE President has accepted my proposal to approve Carlsen's request, and agreed to extend the deadline for signing the contract till September 7."

Thus, Carlsen can play at the Sinquefield Cup without worrying about the decision making. Let us remind you, if Carlsen decides not to sign the contract, he will be replaced by Sergey Karjakin.
