Body recovered from Emiliano Sala plane wreckage

The former club of Emiliano Sala are demanding his transfer fee after the striker's tragic disappearance, according to reports.

According to Sky Sports News, Cardiff have not yet paid any of the £15m fee agreed for the Argentine striker.

Sala and his pilot David Ibbotson have been missing since shortly after their plane took off from France on January 21.

It is now claimed that Nantes are threatening legal action if they do not receive a payment within 10 days.

The Piper Malibu plane has since been spotted on the seabed off Guernsey, where a body was seen inside the wreckage of the aircraft, but has yet to be identified.

It is understood that the agreement between the clubs was to process the payments in instalments over three years.

The 28-year-old was on his way back to Cardiff from Nantes after saying his goodbyes to his old team-mates in France.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said in a statement: "Following extensive visual examination of the accident using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV), it was made a decision to attempt recovery operations".

Although Nantes were entitled to the first instalment of Sala's fee by now, Cardiff have been left surprised by the demand given the circumstances and the timing.
