The Sun UK has unveiled the last post of Cardiff football star, Emiliano Sala which he made on Instagram before his plane disappeared from sight.
The Football star, Emiliano Sala made a poignant social media post saying his “last goodbye” just hours before his plane went missing.
Cardiff’s record signing completed his £15 million move to the Premier League club over the weekend to help boost their fight to avoid relegation.
The 28-year-old then made a quick trip back to North-West France where he wanted to collect some belongings before making his permanent switch to Wales.
Sala used the opportunity to visit his Nantes team-mates where he caught up with the squad and then posed for a group photograph as a memento of the moment.
And in a poignant message, the Argentinian posted the snap to his Instagram account with the simple message “La Ultima Ciao” – “The last goodbye”.
Sala then left the club to make the trip back to South Wales – and has yet to arrive amid reports a light-aircraft has gone missing somewhere near the Channel Islands.
Cardiff and Nantes are both growing in concern for the striker, and are actively trying to establish if the player was on board.
Guernsey police have revealed that the search for the PA 46 Malibu aircraft resumed at eight o’clock this morning, though at this stage no trace of the plane has been found.
They confirmed that it was making a flight from Nantes to Cardiff, with two people believed to be on board.
Cardiff have this morning released a statement which confirms they are fearing the worst.
Chairman Mehmet Dalman said: “We are very concerned by the latest news that a light aircraft lost contact over the Channel last night.
“We are awaiting confirmation before we can say anything further.
“We are very concerned for the safety of Emiliano Sala.”
