Sahal’s deal to be the biggest in transfer history?


Sahal’s deal to be the biggest in transfer history? MAYBE. Many renowned Indians have switch clubs during this summer transfer season. A hot name that joins the list is Kerala Blasters midfielder Sahal Abdul Samad. According to sports journalist sources, Mohun Bagan and Bengaluru FC have made formal offers to sign Sahal Abdul Samad.


The defense has also received a significant boost with the addition of Anwar Ali. The loan deal, valued at a whopping 11 Crore, includes an annual salary of 2 Crore for the player, while the remainder is allocated to Delhi FC. The club has also signed Anirudh Thapa to rejuvenate their midfield. In addition to making waves in the domestic market, they have also successfully added high-caliber foreign players, such as Jason Cummings, the second highest scorer in the A-League last season for a three-year deal, and Armando Sadiku from FC Cartagena.


Sahal Abdul Samad joined Kerala Blasters in 2017 as a 20-year-old and has since made 97 appearances for the senior team, scoring 10 goals and providing 9 assists. He made his debut in 2018 under David James against ATK (now known as Mohun Bagan Super Giant) and has since established himself as a key player for the Blasters. He has enjoyed one his best campaigns last season, scoring 3 goals and providing 3 assists in 23 appearances.

Sahal’s deal to be biggest in transfer history

Since the Kerala Blasters are least interested in selling the midfielder. Therefore, a very large fee for the transfer will be necessary to get Sahal. The 26-year-old has a pen-to-paper deal with the Kerala Blasters until 2025. There are rumours regarding a possible swap between Sahal and Pritam Kotal including the transfer fee. Mohun Bagan determined to rope in Sahal, if the swap deals falls off, then Sahal’s deal is to be the biggest deal in transfer history. If the deal succeeds, Mohun Bagan would possess the top two midfielders in India, Sahal Abdul Samad and Anirudh Thapa.

Sahal, if becomes a part of Mohun Bagan’s midfield, he will be playing alongside an exceptional lineup of players such as Anirudh Thapa, Hugo Boumous, Glan Martins, Carl McHugh, Puitea, among others. It will be interesting to see how far Juan Ferrando can take this team in the AFC Cup.

Finally, we wish Sahal a very happy married life!
