The Argentine striker has been missing since January 21 after the plane he was travelling on lost radar contact near Guernsey.

The Piper Malibu N264DB which was carrying Sala and Ibbotson has recently been found with one body among the wreckage, but it has yet to be identified.

Wales reported the French club have threatened legal action if the £15 million (NZ$28m) is not paid within the next 10 days.

On board with pilot David Ibbotson, Sala's plane went missing over the English Channel on his way to Cariff and debris from the aircraft is now being recovered.

The Ligue 1 club have demanded payment from Cardiff, according to BBC Wales, but the Bluebirds are withholding fees until they are satisfied with the documentation concluding Sala's disappearance.

A source at Cardiff told British media that the Welsh club will honour the contract but only once they have clarified "all the facts".

A body was spotted in underwater images of the wreckage and Britain's Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has launched an operation to try and recover it.
