Mikel Gets N1.1b Severance Fee From Chelsea

By Ikenga Chronicles January 11, 2017

Following a successful move to the Chinese Super Leage, Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi has been reportedly given a severance fee of £2m (N1.1b) for the last six months of his deal with Chelsea.

Mikel signed for Tianjin Teda on a free transfer, where he is expected to earn a whooping sum of N78m weekly.

The captain of the senior Nigeria national team left Chelsea after ten and half years at the club, after falling out of favour with current manager, Antonio Conte. Conte didn’t name the Nigerian in any of his match day squad, as his table topping side relied on Nemanja Matic and N’Golo Kante as the midfield pair in their 3-4-3 system.

Mikel according to an intermediary close to him was paid the total wage of the remaining six months of his contract before his move to Tianjin Teda, on a deal twice his pay at Chelsea.
