HAUNTING audio messages from Emiliano Sala days before his death have revealed he did NOT want to sign for Cardiff City. The Argentine striker, 28, died when the Piper Malibu aircraft he was flying in crashed into the English Channel on January 21. Haunting messages have revealed that Emiliano Sala did not want to sign for Cardiff City He died a little over a day after signing for then-Premier League team Cardiff who had snapped him up for a club record $15million from French side Nantes. But now a WhatApp audio message, sent by Sala to his friend, has revealed the big money move to Wales did not interest the frontman from a “football perspective.” In the January 6 recording, broadcast on L’Équipe’s investigation programme last night on French TV, the 28-year-old also criticised Nantes owner Waldemar Kita and his son Franck. Revealing the news of the proposed transfer, Sala said: “Last night, I sent a message to Meïssa [N’diaye, Sala’s agent], he called me a few hours later. “So we had discussions and he told me the last night Franck Kita [son of Nantes owner Waldemar] sent him a message to talk, so he called him. “They spoke. And, they want to sell me. [quote credit=”Sala on his big money move to Cardiff City”]It is true that it is a good contract but from a football perspective it is not interesting for me[/quote] “So, there is the offer from Cardiff today. On their side, they have negotiated to get a lot of money. So they absolutely want me to go there. “It is true that it is a good contract but from a football perspective it is not interesting for me. “So… there you go, they are trying in every way to get me to go there.! Sala said he was not “scared” of moving to the Welsh side but appeared determined to try and secure a “better” move before the transfer window closed on January 31 – something which did not materialise. He continued: “Me I am not scared to go there, because I have battled throughout my career, so to go there and fight, that does not make me scared. “On the contrary. But also, I say to myself that Meïssa must find me something better between now and the end of the window. “Meïssa has said no to Cardiff because he does not want me to go there. “He thinks that in terms of football, in terms of where we are today, we are in a position of strength in every which way, in terms of on the pitch, the contract, all of that. Sala hit out at Nantes owner Waldemar Kita, left, and his son Franck, right, in the message sent days before the deadly plane crash “But I don’t care about that and I do not want that. I don’t give a f*** about being in a position of strength. “It is true that I would like to find something interesting in terms of contractually and also from a football perspective, but sometimes you can’t have both.” The striker, who hailed from northern Santa Fe province of Argentina, then went on to slam “Kita” – although it’s not clear if he was referring to owner Waldemar or his son Franck. He said: “On the other hand, I do not want to speak with Kita, because I do not want to get angry. “He is someone who disgusts me when I am face to face with him. “Him today, he wants to sell me to Cardiff because he has done a super negotiation, he will get the money he wants eh?” “He, he wants me to go there, he hasn’t even asked what I want… All he cares about is money.” Sala described the situation as a “complete mess”, adding: “So there you go… I don’t know. HAUNTING MESSAGE “I don’t know what to do because as I said to you it is I who has to get up every day and see the face of this person… “But nobody is looking at me… myself… me internally, what I am having to go through. “So, it is very hard, it is very hard, because I feel like there are not many people who would put themselves in my place.” This comes as Sala’s family accused Cardiff of abandoning him “like a dog”. Speaking on a BBC Wales documentary, pals and relatives raged at arrangements for the doomed flight, which was made at night in bad weather. The footie star’s dad, Horacio Sala, who died of a heart attack three months after his son, told the BBC: “With all the money that had been paid for him, why was it so hard for them to find something safe? “Why couldn’t they? But – they left him alone. They left him like a dog. They left him. They abandoned him.” Pilot David Ibbotson, 59, from Crowle, Lincolnshire, whose body hasn’t been found, may not have been qualified to make the flight. [quote credit=”Horacio Sala”]They left him like a dog. They left him. They abandoned him.[/quote] Aviation expert Alastair Rosenschein said: “It’s a single engine flight over a long stretch of water, in winter, at night, in icy conditions. “I think that most pilots would not have done that flight.” Cardiff City say they offered Sala a seat on a commercial flight, but he declined it. A feud broke out between the two clubs over Sala’s transfer, which the Welsh club insists wasn’t completed.

RANGERS are reportedly on the verge of snapping up Sporting Lisbon starlet Umaro Balde. The Evening Times claims the Portuguese youth international, 16, is set to sign a two-year deal with the Light Blues. Portuguese teenager pictured in 2016 It comes after the midfielder – who won’t cost the Ibrox club a penny – impressed Gers coaches during a trial at the Hummel Training Centre. The Rangers youngsters have enjoyed a stunning 2018/19 campaign, winning the Scottish FA Youth Cup and the reserve league. Nathan Young-Coombes, 16 – who arrived earlier this year from Chelsea – grabbed the winner in the televised Hampden showpiece against rivals Celtic. Dapo Mebude, 17, another Youth Cup Final goalscorer, was handed his debut against Kilmarnock on the final day of the season by gaffer Steven Gerrard.

And we told earlier how Hibs defender Ryan Porteous marked the end of the season by posting a picture of his horror tackle on Ibrox midfielder Lassana Coulibaly from January.
