What is making Sarthak leave the Mariners
Sarthak wants to leave East Bengal because of the ongoing tension between the club and the investors. Shree Cement Limited even after signing the final contract. Shree Cement and the team management are having problems regarding the negotiations. So, until the problem gets settled there won’t be any kind of negotiations in contract between the players and the club.
With doubt over the future of the club, Sarthak does not want to take any chances and is likely to join the Blues. Reports say that along with the signing of Sarthak, the Blues are also trying to sign Jayesh Rane from Mohun Bagan. Jayesh have played 16 matches with Mohun Bagan. These two signings can be good additions to the Blues and might strengthen the squad.
