Flight arrangements text messages between Emiliano Sala & agent Willie McKay’s son revealed

Sky Sports have released text message correspondence between William McKay’s son, Jack, and Emiliano Sala, about flight arrangements.

They show that the Argentine was initially looking to book commercial travel, but was thankful for the agent’s offer of private transportation.


7:43pm – Jack McKay: “My dad has told me that you are going home tomorrow. He could organise a plane to take you direct to Nantes and to come back on Monday, at a time that suits you, so you can get to training on Tuesday.”

7:51pm – Emiliano Sala: “Ah that is great. I was just in the middle of checking if there are some flights to get to Nantes tomorrow.”

7:56pm – McKay: “He said he could organise a plane that would go direct to Nantes.”

7:56pm – Sala: “How much will it cost?”

7:56pm – McKay: “Nothing. He said if you help me to score goals it’s nothing.”

7:59pm – Sala: “Hahaha with pleasure.”

8:00pm: “We are going to score lots of goals.”

8:01pm: “I want to leave tomorrow for Nantes at around 11am and come back on Monday night around 9pm to Cardiff if that is possible.”

8:05pm – McKay: “Good. I’ll send a message when that’s sorted.”


5:00pm – Jack McKay: “Hi there is it possible you could come back at seven in the evening on Monday night? Just because the pilot has to get home in the north after he gets to Cardiff.”

5:01pm – Emiliano Sala: “Hi, Half past seven would be possible.”
