Mikel Tempted With N66m A Week Offer From Chinese Club

Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel has reportedly received a mouth-watering offer of $212,000 a week (about N66m official rate) from Chinese club Shanghai SIPG.

The offer according to owngoalnigeria.com was made to the player’s agent after the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Algeria.

Mikel has been handed the choice of taking the huge pay or settle for the former UEFA Champions League champions, where he faces a pay cut.

The 29-year old has been frozen out by Chelsea coach Antonio Conte despite being in a rich physical form but has been receiving interest from French club Marseille.

Shanghai SIPG is rated third in terms of wealth and revenue in the Chinese league and the club is currently managed by former Chelsea coach Andre Villas-Boas.

It also has Sven Goran Erikson former England coach in the management team.

Last season Mikel turned down a move to Shanghai Shenhua, which currently have in its squad, former Super Eagles striker Obafemi Martins who is living large in China.
