FC Goa has met and spoken to Laxmikant Kattimani, Romeo Fernandes and Mandar Rao Dessai but the players have decided to opt from signing as the team is still trying to negotiate financial terms. “Romeo Fernandes and Mandar Rao Desai have asked for time as they are looking for other options. They are not happy with the financial package being offered to them by us,” a highly placed FC Goa source told The Navhind Times.
“Mandar Rao Desai has asked for eighty lakhs. Romeo has asked around the same. Kattimani has asked less but FC Goa expect them to scale down. FC Goa has not asked them to climb down drastically but have asked them to look for a fifteen to twenty lakhs climb down.” disclosed our source.
Highly placed sources in FC Pune City have disclosed that negotiations with Mandar have reached a serious stage and in all probabilities he will be seen wearing their colours for the coming ISL.
