5 highest transfer fees paid in the history of ISL

-

With Liston Colaco’s much-anticipated move to ATK Mohun Bagan from Hyderabad making the headlines, let’s analyze the Top 5 ISL transfers with transfer fees involved.

Ever since the ISL came onto the Indian footballing scene the cash inflow in the game has increased vastly and now clubs are paying big bucks to acquire services of various talents. We have seen, young stalwarts fetch high fees off late, and without any further ado let’s dive straight into the topic:

5. Manvir Singh

From:- FC Goa To:- ATK Mohun Bagan

Transfer fee:- ₹80 lakhs Date:- August, 2020

5 highest transfer fees paid in the history of ISL manvir singh odisha vs atk mohun bagan 1k6t0mjwlvdao1icxccvk682ya

Manvir Singh was always a young and talented centre-forward at FC Goa. We have seen the glimpses of his quality but there was always a question on his consistency as he remained an understudy to Ferran Corominas at FC Goa.

Many eyebrows were raised when the newly re-christened ATK Mohun Bagan spent a huge ₹80 lakhs in transfer fees to bring him to Salt Lake despite having established Indian strikers in Balwant Singh and Jobby Justin who themselves hardly played due to the presence of prolific Roy Krisha.

Manvir covered the hard yards and starting the season as an impact-sub he transformed himself as an integral part of Antonio Habas’ system.

His numbers have improved vastly since he moved to the Kolkata giants. He scored 6 goals and further laid 3 assists in 23 matches. Which comes out to be an average of 0.55 goal contributions per game which is an enormous improvement on 0.11 goal contributions per game a season before at the Fatorda.

His solo derby goal was a one to remember and he quickly became a fan favorite among the Bagan faithfuls.
