Mikel Obi set to leave Chelsea

With Chelsea trying to get back their old winning glory, the new coach has made clear his concerns on some players.

One of those players is one of Chelsea's oldest and Nigerian mid fielder Mikel Obi. Antonio Conte recently dropped a bombshell on the club’s current second longest serving player John Mikel Obi by stating that he is not in his plans and can leave in January.

Mikel has spent 11 seasons at Stamford Bridge winning not only the Premier league for the club but also the champions league. Mikel has not been featured in any Chelsea match of late by Conte so this is a telling sign.

The Super Eagles captain according to reports had engaged in talks with Conte pertaining to making his first competitive appearance under him and Mikel had given the impression that matters were under control only to receive this shocker from his English side’s boss.

According to“There’s every possibility for him to leave Chelsea either on loan or permanently in January. But the summer looks more likely. Every story must have an end. After 11 seasons, Mikel wants to move on and so too Chelsea.”

The 29-year-old midfielder put his Chelsea career at risk and guided the national team to a memorable bronze at the Rio Olympic Games in August – and returned  the following month to lead the Super Eagles to a 1-0 victory over Tanzania in a Gabon 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Uyo.

Good Luck to him.
