The Virat Kohli co-owned franchisee, has perhaps taken full advantage of the extended transfer deadline date. From being linked to international tie-ups to signing renowned players, FC Goa have played their cards right.

The Hard Tackle, understands that now FC Goa have set eyes on another Brazilian, Cristian Baroni. Reports have also emerged from Turkey, about a possible move, to India.

Cristian Baroni was champion of the Brazil Cup in 2005 by Paulista Futebol Clube. In 2006 he was hired by Atlético Paranaense for a season. In 2007 went to Flamengo and had a good time participating in the rise of the Championship that year, which came out of the relegation zone and qualified for the Libertadores America. A deal away from Brazil to Turkey, made Baroni a renowned player in the Asian continent. After providing years of hardwork and dedication for the Turkish Outfit, Baroni has won the hearts of almost all Fenerbahce supporters. He is also famous for his remote shots in the Turkish Super Lig.

A player who has won numerous accolades and trophies, both in Brazil and Turkey, will certainly provide ammo to the Goan Midfield region.

Another Masterclass act by Zico, going for Players still playing in some of the best foreign league and are yet to retire, pretty much sums his acumen and vision for the club.
