Northeast United FC is reportedly interested to sign ATK’s midfield maestro Jayesh Rane for a permanent move to the Northeast United.
Northeast United FC Interested To Sign Jayesh Rane
Rumours are circulating around social media and YouTube that Jayesh Rane, who has been a vital part of ATK squad for ISL, this season would be making a move to the Northeast United FC.
Now if you are an ATK fan, you might ask yourself a question that, Why would ATK release their long-serving player ? Is this rumour even true or it’s fake ?
Let us take you back some days. Some days earlier, there were rumours regarding ATK that they are set to release four of their Indian players. 2 on free release and 2 with transfer fee.
Now, what we think is, it is very much possible that Jayesh Rane will be one of them. Jayesh Rane has already got another year left in his contract. So, if Northeast United FC does want him, then they will have to pay a transfer fee to ATK.
But why will Jayesh Rane leave ? Again we are gonna go back to that rumour of four players who are set to be released by the ISL champions.
First of all, why ATK releasing players from their team ? The most probable reason is that they want to have Mohun Began players also part of their merged entity for this season so they can have Mohun Began fans support behind the new team.
Now we come to Jayesh Rane, why we think Jayesh Rane must be one of those four players. The reason is none other than Mohun Bagan’s young sensation SK Sahil. Sahil plays as a midfielder, the same role as Jayesh Rane, and that’s why if they want to have SK Sahil, then they have to release Jayesh Rane because SK Sahil would absolutely be looking game time and if he can’t get it in ATK, he might prefer to move somewhere else.
As for Jayesh Rane, he has been with the team for last 3 seasons but last season, in the presence of Edu Garcia and Javi Hernandez, Jayesh got most of the chances to come into the field as a substitute.
But there are a lot of chances that this season he will get game time, considering Mohun Bagan ATK will now be taking part in lots of competition this season such as Durand Cup, CFL and AFC Cup as well alongside ISL.
Also as per AFC guidelines, only 4 foreigners (3 foreigners+1Asian) can start for the team, which means there are more opportunities for Jayesh Rane or SK Sahil.
So will Jayesh Rane move over to Northeast United FC or he is gonna stay hoping that this season he will get more game times. No one knows but he is guaranteed game time if he does move to Northeast United FC.
