Body recovered from plane carrying Emiliano Sala and David Ibbotson

Nantes are demanding their first payment for Emiliano Sala

A body has been successfully recovered from wreckage of the plane carrying Emiliano Sala, according to reports out of the United Kingdom.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said in a statement: "Following extensive visual examination of the accident using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV), it was made a decision to attempt recovery operations".

Sala, 28, was on board the Piper Malibu plane with David Ibbotson, 59, the pilot, when it disappeared from radar near Guernsey on January 21.

The wreckage of the plane, which vanished two weeks ago over the English Channel, had been found off Guernsey.

David Mearns, whose private company, Blue Water Recoveries, was hired by Sala's family to search for the plane, said the wreck was spotted early Sunday.

The statement said it has not been possible to bring the wreckage to the surface and the operation has now ceased.

After performing the ceremonial face-off, Mourinho turned to exit the ice only to slip over on the carpet on his way back.

However, attempts to recover the aircraft were unsuccessful due to poor weather conditions.

"The weather forecast is poor for the foreseeable future and so the hard decision was taken to bring the overall operation to a close".

The body is being taken to the Isle of Portland on the South Coast of England, according to the Mirror, where it will be passed on to a coroner for an examination.

"The first reason is that the body has not been recovered yet", he told L'Equipe about the lack of payment so far. However, the AAIB says that video from a remote underwater vehicle "is expected to provide valuable evidence for our safety investigation".

Sala was signed by Premier League side Cardiff City in January for a club record fee of £15million, before the Argentine striker and his pilot went missing.

The recovery of the body comes amid reports the French football club has demanded Cardiff make payment for the transfer of the player. "We must show respect to the family".
