Post Season Transfer gossips on roll!

Even though the Season has not come to an end, with the IFA Shield still to be held from 25th Februray onwards, the Transfer gossips which usually keep the Kolkata Maidan entartained when the there are no games around, has already started to heat the atmosphere. Both the Big clubs are claiming to have contacted big players and fished out some handsome picks as East Bengal claim that Lalkamal and Lalampuia are almost sure to move from Bagan following a huge offer. Even they have contacted Manju who, as they say, has agreed to move only if Venkatesh is signed with him. Even though, East Bengal had jumped for Bhaichung Bhutia, Bagan skipper has waived off any offers from the down in the dumps torch bearers. On the other hand, even though it has not been made official, rumours are that I League's highest scorer, Churchill's Odafa Okili has accepted Bagan's offer of a huge sum, possibly to the highest transfer fee ever paid to a player in India. Though, Odafa has denied such claims, may be because the season has not ended and he is still a Churchill player. Moreover, Bagan has roped in 8 TFA players, of them Branco Cardozo deserves special mentioned as he has impressed a lot of football watchers when he played for India in the Under 21 Asia tournament.
