John Mikel Obi might remain in Europe

Super Eagles Captain, John Mikel Obi has recieved four offers to leave Chelsea but he is unlikely to move to China and may be staying put in Europe.

The 29-year-old has been at Stamford Bridge since 2006 but is set to end his 10-year association with the London club after not making a single appearance in the first half of the season.

Antonio Conte has been unwilling to give the Nigeria international a chance during his tenure at the club and Valencia, Inter Milan and Marseille are all ready to take him on.

A source close to the player told ESPN: ‘‘All the offers are getting serious consideration but it is first and foremost about project football, and not about money.”

‘’That is why we are not considering the offer from China.”

‘‘He also has a young family that is very important to him and he does not want to cause any upheaval in their lives.”

‘’Family is No. 1 priority for him in all this, so that is another reason for him to want to stay in Europe.”

‘’We have to make sure that we make the best decision based on that.”

‘’He is taking time to spend Christmas with his family. After that, a decision will be made.’’
