The <a title="New Edubiase United" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Edubiase_United">New Edubiase United</a> striker's
    two year contract with his current club ends in this season and he will
    be a free agent there after. East Bengal have reportedly approached him
    through a player recruitment agency which brought in Yusif Yakubu to
    India. Initial reports suggest that the star striker's wage demand is
    close to rs 350 Lakhs a season, which is obviously on the higher side as
    far as the Red-&-Gold's budget is concerned. However they are keen
    to rope him in and top East Bengal officials are hunting for roping in
    new co-sponsers who can afford to pay them at-least 50% of Baffour's

    <span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; color: #000000;"><strong>East Bengal</strong> defender <em>Nirmal Chhetri</em> announced on a social microblogging site that he will be donning <strong>Mohun Bagan</strong> jersey in the upcoming season. <em>"It
    was tough decision to make..I'm mentally & physically ready to make
    a move to Mohun Bagan..New Challenges, New Surrounding and Hopes!"</em> - <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/nirmalchettri03&quot; target="_blank">Twitted</a>

    <span style="color: #333399;"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong>East Bengal</strong> goal-machine <em>Tolgay Ozbey </em>is all set to switch loyalty to arch-rivals <strong>Mohun Bagan</strong>.
    After the last I-League game of the season against Air India, he
    revealed the news of his transfer to Green-&-Maroon brigade to his
    near and dear ones. However it is unlikely that he will officially
    confirm the news before 15th May -  till the time Kolkata Football
    League gets over. It has been learnt that out of his Rs 150 Lakhs a year
    deal, Tolgay has already taken Rs 75 Lakhs in advance from Mohun Bagan.
    He is also getting a luxurious Bunglow and a sports car as a gift to
    become a Mohun Bagan player. East Bengal officials are still trying to
    negotiate with Tolgay in order to convince him to stay at Red-&-Gold
    - but all seem to be in lost case.</span></span></span>

    <span style="color: #333399;"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Promising youngster <em>Lalrindika Ralte</em>
    - who is having multiple offers from clubs across the country,
    including both the Kolkata bigwigs, - has reportedly made up his mind to
    move out of <strong>Churchill Brothers</strong> by the end of current season. It has been learnt that his preffered destination is <strong>East Bengal</strong> and the negotiations are in the final phase. <strong>Mohun Bagan</strong>
    too were serious to lure him, but with East Bengal looking to shower
    more money, Bagan have retracted a bit and signed another talented Mizo
    winger - <em>Lalrinfela</em> from <strong>Southern Samity</strong> - thus tilting the probability in favor of the Red-&-Gold brigade.</span></span>

    <span style="color: #333399;"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Reports emerging out from Kolkata-based print media houses suggest that <em>Arnab Mondal </em>of <strong>Prayag United SC </strong>is in talks with city-rivals <strong>East Bengal </strong>for
    a transfer move. East Bengal have reportedly offered him a lucrative
    multi-year contract and the Indian international defender is seriously
    contemplating a switch to the Red-&-Gold brigade.</span></span>

    roping in right back Nirmal Chhetri, Mohun Bagan are now reportedly
    interested to sign Nirmal's partner in the other fullback position from
    East Bengal - left back Soumik dey. 28 years old Soumik has been a
    Red-&-Gold player for over six seasons and is considered as an icon
    player by the East Bengal faithful. It will be a huge blow for East
    Bengal if Mohun Bagan succeeds to sign him up on the dotted lines.
    Soumik himself denied the rumor when contacted by an LIF correspondent -
    but insider information suggests that a top Mohun Bagan official has
    got in touch with him regarding the rumored transfer move.</span></span></span></span></span>

    <span style="color: #333399;"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">RIP all the rumors of <em>Robin Singh</em> getting roped in by <strong>Bagan</strong> and <strong>Dempo! </strong>The "<em>Derby Dynamite</em>" - as he is fondly called by the Red-&-Golds faithful, has renewed his contract with <strong>East Bengal</strong>
    for two more season. East Bengal officially announced the news of his
    contract extension on air. Robin, who was on a Rs 50 Lakhs per season
    package, gets an increment of Rs 10 Lakhs - as per the local visual
    media sources. <br></span></span>

    Baberto, you are impressive, right on the money,  looks like one of THOSE fans.  I'd put my money on you, bud. Please post on the transfer thread, that thread will really be helped with your inputs.  That thread has been pretty mundane of late.<br>
