    This was always going to be the awkward bit now.

    There’s no getting away from it, Cardiff owe Nantes dough and they’re going to have to pay it.

    Not in any way a consolation, but at least the family will get to bury him instead of the body never being found.

    Shame, hope the pilot's family receive as much care as Sala's will.

    Insurance covers the fee, there’s nothing awkward about it. Only things that’s awkward is the media making Nantes look like dicks saying they are demanding £5mill.

    There’s nothing awkward about Nantes asking Cardiff for money whilst a dead guy is at the bottom of the sea? That’s my point...

    I doubt it’s happened like the media are saying though. Putting their usual spin on it for clicks.

    I assume that the search for the pilots body will continue with the same resources.
    Or was the purpose of the search just to find the (relatively) famous footballer?

    Nantes have sent Cardiff 2 legal letters demanding payment for a dead footballer. Doesn’t matter what the papers are saying, that’s the facts of it.

    Hope they find the pilot as well so his family can at least get some sort of closure.

    The whole scenario is just my worst nightmare.

    Aye. That’s what the papers are saying :giggle1: Nantes know fine well that the investigation had to be finished first for the insurance to then be claimed.

    Nantes aren’t exactly rich. Unfortunately they are owed money, money that Cardiff have plenty of and will get back. I highly doubt they are demanding like the media are suggesting. They are making them out to be completely ignorant of the fact two men have just died when that’s not true at all.

    Insurance will try to wriggle their way out of a pay out. Always do. Would hope when the contracts were signed that the insurance papers were also sorted. But will he be covered for using that transport or company. They will use every excuse.

    Got to hope with all eyes on them they will deal with it the way they should. Think the insurance covers players deaths in general. Just happens to be £16m when his fee was £15m. Not 100% sure. Such a * * situation.

    Just on the news that £100k has been raised to continue the search for him.

    £27k of it from Kylian Mbappe.

    Noticed that.
    Fair play to Mbappe and the others that have donated. Hope they can find the poor guy for his family’s sake.

    There's pictures going around on wats app of the plane recovery and one of the bodies. It's * rank, so disrespectful whoever took them and passed them on.

    If it's the same ones I've seen the tail numbers don't match up.

    Cardiff now contacting other Premiership clubs for advice on how to get out of paying what they are due.

    As I said before this is going to get very awkward, very murky and downright shady very quickly. On the day the Cardiff manager attended his funeral in Argentina.
