Huge news for all the Mohun Bagan fans across the globe, as Mohun Bagan has completed the signing of Bagan heart-throb Sony Norde for 2018-19 football season. The club source stated, “He is in Miami and will apply for his employment visa by today for which the necessary formalities are being addressed.”

He has agreed to undergo the required medical and physical fitness test upon his arrival in Kolkata. He will be registered with The Indian Football Association (WB) after successful completion of medical and physical fitness test.

Sony informed www.xtratime.in at least a couple of months back that Mohun Bagan was his first preference and this announcement has been the confirmation of it.

Though, a few days back, Sony Norde wrote on his Facebook page that he is getting frustrated as the officials are not responding to his request of taking his medical test before turning down the chances of signing him. Though enthusiasts are claiming that it might be a part of his pressure tactics and it has finally worked for him.
