John Mikel Obi Set For A Mega Money Move To China After Being Axe By Antonio Conte


Ekun Samuel, 16 December 2016 The Chinese League are eager to get much recognition and its gradually growing popularity, with its mega money offer to Europe top stars. Already some top names are plying their trade there, the likes of Didier Drogba, Hulk, and Ramires. The recent name to be linked with a move to the Chinese League is Chelsea's midfielder John Mikel Obi according to the "London Evening Standard". Oscar deal to China seems all settled and done, as he confirmed his move is 90% completed and remains some bureaucratic details to go through. The 29 years old Super Eagles captain haven't featured for Chelsea this season, and has seen him expressed his growing frustration as he implied to being punished by Antonio Conte for going to the Olympics. No substantial claim from Chelsea for the basis and situation of the statement from the midfielder. It could be perhaps Mikel Obi style of play doesn't suit Antonio Conte idea of football. With his current situation, it looks likely that the player will be leaving Stamford Bridge in the coming months as the Nigeria captain’s contract is due to expire on June 30, 2017 and Chelsea hasn't shown any interest in tying down the midfielder to a new deal.  According to "London Evening Standard",  Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG, are said to have made inquires and reached out with a £170,000-a-week offer, Mikel could well end up in China next. Mikel Obi would become the second Chelsea player after Oscar to leave Chelsea in January if the news is anything to go by.
