The signing of Sandesh Jhingan has made the club tick off the name which was right on the top of their shortlist. Jhingan is arguably the best Indian defender at this point of time, and his availability as a free agent was one of the biggest talking points of the season. After mutually terminating his contract with Kerala Blasters FC, Jhingan will be joining ATK Mohun Bagan FC in their race for defending the title. It is being heard that he will become one of the highest paid Indian footballers after this deal.

Ranjit Bajaj gave fans a hint regarding this move few days back.

Now coming to what made ATKMB the most lucrative project for our talismanic defender– firstly the record of the team, secondly the calendar season with AFC Cup appended later in the year and last but not the least the whole hype around the club which can potentially be the finest credential on his profile.
