Mikel ponders on transfer options


Super Eagles skipper, John Mikel Obi, is still pondering on the way forward, as more clubs showed interest in his transfer next month.
The Chelsea of England defensive midfielder is carefully studying offers from clubs showing interest in his signature, as he is waiting for the biggest carrot before the transfer window.
Two seasons ago, Mikel demanded a salary of six million dollars tax-free a year if he were to quit Stamford Bridge.
“He is not looking for a club to win more trophies again, he is looking for a club, that will give him good money. That is the more reason the agents are now studying the offers tabled by all the clubs interested in his services,” revealed a close confidant of Mikel.
“He has achieved a lot in football, so he needs the money now.”
It is already understood that Inter Milan have tabled a bigger offer than Olympique Marseille for the Nigeria skipper.
Four top Chinese clubs as well as top French club Marseille and Milan rivals Inter and AC Milan are believed to be in the hunt for the experienced midfielder.
The 29-year-old Mikel has outdone the legendary Nwankwo Kanu as the most decorated Nigeria star after he won both the UEFA Champions League and Europa League as well as two Premier League titles, four FA Cup and two League Cup winners’ medals.
