One of the biggest missed transfers of the 2022-2023 season was ATK Mohun Bagan FC’s move to Chennaiyin FC for the midfielder. ATK Mohun Bagan, who came forward with the aim of strengthening the team for the 2022-2023 season, approached the superstar as a huge offer. However, Chennaiyin FC imposed an even bigger clause on the player.

ATK Mohun Bagan tried to acquire Aniriudh Thapa, the number seven of the Indian national team and the captain of Chennaiyin FC and the midfielder superstar. The Kolkata club offered a five-year contract and a huge fee for Anirudh Thapa. Had that happened, 24-year-old Anirudh Thapa would have held the record of being the highest paid Indian player.
However, ATK Mohun Bagan’s effort was not successful.
