Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel could be heading to China on a deal reportedly worth £170,000 (N66 million) a week. According to Owngoalnigeria.com the out-of-favour Chelsea player might take the offer.
It was gathered that the Shanghai SIPG reportedly contacted his representatives with the offer after the last international weekend. It is likely the Nigerian international might take the offer considering that he is yet to play a game at Chelsea under new manager Antonio Conte.
Last season Mikel turned down a move to Shanghai Shenhua opting to remain with Chelsea, where he would be a free agent next summer, a condition that gives him the authority to talk to interested clubs in January.
A nominal transfer fee in the region of £2-5m would be paid to Chelsea for the midfielder, who is currently the second longest serving player in the team behind captain John Terry.
Mikel currently earns £80,000 a week at Chelsea, a figure that makes him the highest earning Nigerian player in Europe, but second behind Obafemi Martins who plays for Shanghai Shenhua in China on the overall list.

Portuguese daily newspaper A Bola has this morning claimed the Real Madrid striker is angry at his treatment by Spanish tax authorities and has expressed his wish to leave the country.

Ronaldo denies the accusation and A Bola say the 32-year-old striker has made the “irreversible” decision to leave the club, and has informed his teammates of his intentions.

“It is clear that the football player did not try to evade taxes,” Ronaldo’s Gestifute management company said.
