The British investigators in charge of the search of the plane in which Emiliano Sala was traveling when he disappeared on Monday, January 21, have found the remains of two plane seats on a beach in Normandy, on the French coast. Preliminary examinations allow to establish that these remains are "probably" of the plane that disappeared last week in which the Argentine footballer and a pilot were traveling, according to what has been announced in a statement.
The Air Accident Investigation Department of the United Kingdom, AAIB, has also announced that it will initiate an underwater search. An area has been identified in the sea where the search will begin, which, due to weather conditions and the state of the sea, will not be able to start until the end of this week. A spokesman for the AAIB has confirmed to English media that the search will last three days.
The disappearance of Emiliano Sala while flying over the English Channel has created an unprecedented litigation in the recent history of world football. The Argentine striker, 28 years old, had committed to Cardiff City, of the Premier, on Saturday, January 19, that is, two days before the tragedy. His transfer from Nantes cost 17 million euros. Two days after the British police decided to close the search, the family of Sala managed to reactivate last Saturday the search for Sala and the pilot, thanks to the contribution of more than 300,000 euros from donations.
