Mumbai City FC announced the return of Sunil Chhetri, Udanta Singh, Amrinder Singh and Lalchhuanmawia Fanai to its squad. The four returned after their involvement in Bengaluru FC's historic run to the AFC Cup final.

Chhetri said, “We've had an incredible experience with Bengaluru FC and now we're extremely excited to join our ISL teammates. We have been following Mumbai City's progress and the results and performances from the team have been phenomenal.” MCFC is topping the eight-team league, without the services of these four in-form players who are available for the next home game against FC Pune City.

Alexandre Guimaraes, MCFC head coach, remarked: “We are delighted to have Sunil, Amrinder, Fanai and Udanta join us. They return from an amazing journey with Bengaluru FC. Their achievements speak highly of their quality and hunger. Having them join us at this key point gives us a huge boost.”

Marquee player Diego Forlan has led the Mumbai City attack so far.
