The small plane carrying Emiliano Sala and

Sala began his professional career in

And after struggling to break into the first
team, he was loaned out to Championnat
National side Orléans and Ligue 2 side
Niort in consecutive seasons.
He joined Nantes in 2015 and made more
than 100 appearances in Ligue 1 thereby
achieving a successful goal-scoring record
finishing as the club’s top goalscorer for
three consecutive seasons.
Sala was on the verge of making a name

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Emiliano
Sala’s former side Nantes are demanding
that Cardiff City should pay the sum of £15
million transfer fee for their former striker
who is now dead.
Nantes have allegedly threatened to take
legal action if Cardiff do not pay them
within 10 days, although reports from
Cardiff suggest the club will honour their
agreement with the Ligue 1 club.
