The ISL has had many marquee players in its 6 year’s history. The number of marquee signings have gone down in recent years because of lack of finances and also because they aren’t available for much years. But still the clubs are interested to sign marquee players when they have the luxury of spending for one of them. Marquee players played a crucial role in increasing the viewership and the popularity of the league in its early years. Not all marquee players have performed well in the ISL but the excitement they bring to the fans is unparalleled. We have already seen rumours of players like Samir Nasri creating a real buzz amongst the indian football fans.
