Nantes consider legal action over Sala transfer payment

Nantes consider legal action over Sala transfer payment

The search for Emiliano Sala is ongoing, but Nantes have demanded that Cardiff City still pay the 15 million pounds for the Argentine's transfer.

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

The move was seen as poorly timed given the effort to recover the 28-year-old footballer's body from the wreckage of the Piper Malibu plane which crashed into the English Channel is still ongoing.

According to BBC Wales, Cardiff withheld the first scheduled payment until they are satisfied with the documentation.

A source at Cardiff told the BBC they want "all the facts" clarified before they honour the payment and that the club are "surprised" the demand has been made before Sala's body has been recovered.

Sala and pilot David Ibbotson were onboard a private aircraft, the wreckage of which was discovered on Sunday evening underwater in the English Channel.

A recovery crew eventually found the aircraft in the ocean, with a body said to be visible in the wreckage.

The Sala family are now in Nantes anxiously awaiting the fate of Emiliano and are still to learn whether it is even his body in the aircraft.

Cardiff were reportedly shocked by the timing of the letter from Nantes, as recovery workers are now in the process of trying to excavate the body of someone from the crash plane he was in.

Emiliano Sala's former club Nantes were over joyous when they scored in the ninth minute against Toulouse in another emotional tribute to the player.
