Sandesh Jhingan, the most wanted name in the Indian football market at the moment. The India international centre-back was part of Kerala Blasters FC but last month he parted ways with the club as Kerala was asking Jhingan to take a pay cut as the team was struggling financially due to COVID-19 outbreak.
ATK Mohun Bagan FC were the favourites to sign the Indian international defender, Sandesh Jhingan till now, because it is now being said that even FC Goa want to sign Jhingan.
FC Goa Ready To Go All Out For Sandesh Jhingan
If a latest report of Talking Football Today is to be believed, FC Goa is ready to go all out to sign Sandesh Jhingan and would fight to wire against ATK Mohun Bagan FC.
FC Goa is set to get a huge money boost from Hugo Boumous sale as the player is set to join Mumbai City FC, who has agreed to pay his release clause of INR 1.6 crore. Also Goa is set to receive additional 80 lakh from ATK Mohun Bagan FC for the sale of Manvir Singh.
That makes it more than INR 2.4 crore that FC Goa will get by selling players. This money boost will play a crucial role in signing Sandesh Jhingan.
Sandesh Jhingan initially agreed personal terms with ATK Mohun Bagan FC, but this interest from FC Goa will surely make Jhingan think before committing to a team.
If sign either of the team, he sure to get a Asian competition as ATK Mohun Bagan FC will play in the AFC Cup while FC Goa are the first Indian club who will play in the AFC Champions League group stage.
Now Sandesh Jhingan will have to make a tough decision between ATK Mohun Bagan FC and FC Goa. ATK Mohun Bagan FC means he would get to play in the AFC Cup as well as he would be part of Indian legendary club’s legacy. While going for FC Goa’s way means AFC Champions League and getting a chance to play against the Asia’s best.
And remember, there always a opportunity if international flights starts soon, Sandesh Jhingan might go abroad on trials.
