Tim Cahill

Bengaluru, December 8: In a huge news for Indian football, Australia and former Everton star Tim Cahill could well be on his way to India as his agent has offered the Aussie legend’s services to Indian Super League franchise Delhi Dynamos.

After his eight-year stint at the Blue half of the Merseyside, the star Socceroos player moved to New York Red Bulls, following that up with stints in China with Shanghai Shenhua and Hangzhou Greentown.

After a short stint at Melbourne City FC, Cahill is set to make a move yet again, after he terminated his contract with the club, reportedly due to a shortage in playing time.

Now, a free agent, Cahill is said to be targeting to make it to the Australian squad for the 2018 World Cup, which would be his fourth appearance at the mega tournament.

The 38-year-old has had a long and successful career in the top level and was a fan favourite at Everton where he spent eight successful years.

His time with the Australia national team has been glorious too and in many ways, Cahill is a global superstar and one of the best Asia has ever produced.

Cahill’s arrival in ISL would surely take the tournament to a whole another height and the fans will surely be excited by the news.

Cahill has set his eyes on different leagues in Asia, and the ISL in India is said to be one of them.

His agent is also said to have sent an offer to ISL side Delhi Dynamos, for a possible transfer for the Aussie legend, according to sources.

While the quota for the maximum number of foreign players allowed in a squad is eight, Delhi currently have only seven foreigners, and are in desperate need of some reinforcements, after having lost two home games on the trot for the first time.

Signing Cahill as their final foreign player will surely be a huge huge boost for the Delhi franchise.

Despite these developments, it is set to be a task and a half for the Dynamos to land Cahill’s signature.

Being a global superstar with a huge brand value, the Aussie has attracted interests from all over the continent, especially from countries like Thailand and Indonesia who can offer him a good financial package too.
