Mikel Agrees Deal With Valencia

By Ikenga Chronicles January 3, 2017
Despite speculations that John Obi Mikel has agreed a deal with French club, Marseille, the Super Eagles captain has reportedly signed a 4-year deal with Valencia.
Mikel has been shown the door out of Stamford Bridge after he was told by the manager, Antonio Conte to find a new club as his services will not be needed.
However, he has opted to remain in Europe with a move to Spain with reasons still unknown despite stronger interests from clubs in China, France and Italy.
There won’t be a transfer fee involved as Mikel only has six months left on his contract and the Blues would prefer to release him to get him off the wage bill.
Mikel spent eleven seasons at Chelsea where he won two Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League once.
Valencia’s sporting director, Jesus Garcia Pitarch, confirmed the club’s interest in Mikel. “In the case of Obi Mikel, I met with him in London on Christmas Day or the day before” Pitarch said in quotes reported by Super Deporte.
“I asked permission with Chelsea to meet with him and gave him this possibility.”
“He told me that he would think about it and now it is a situation to assess.”
