    I've been waiting for this and wondering what the scenario would be. One rather hopes Cardiff had insurance

    yes.

    I understand the agents have also been pestering both clubs for their fees.

    just when you thought football has reached the nadir . . . it starts tunneling down.

    Did they find his body?

    Last I saw was that they found ‘a body’ in the plane but no further information.

    I don’t think the insurance company would payout if they can’t locate Sala’s corpse.

    Same thing like Shergar innit...no body found so no insurance payout.

    What if he’s done a Harold Bishop and washed up somewhere with no memory like.

    That’s nothing to do with football, it’s simply business and, more importantly, the law. The directors of Nantes have, I assume, the same legal responsibilities as directors of a company in the UK; that is to say, a requirement to act in the best interests of the company. They simply do not have the option of walking away from a £15 million asset.

    Right. But so long as it's other people's money, no-one cares about that.

    Well, I suppose they could argue that the PR fallout would be worth more than the £15 million.

    That is, if they wanted to ..
