Mikel Obi Confirms Move to Chinese Club Tianjin TEDA



Super Eagles‘ Captain, John Mikel Obi has confirmed that he is leaving Chelsea FC to Chinese Super League club Tianjin TEDA.

This was after a picture of the midfielder shaking hands with the club’s official and holding the club’s shirt, was shared on social media.

In a letter he titled: “Letter to my Chelsea Family”, Mikel announced his transfer.

He has also changed his Twitter bio, to read “Tianjin TEDA Midfielder”.

Reports say Mikel will earn about £140,000 (about N70m using the black market rate) a week in his new club.

Mikel, who spent 11 years in the English football side, had held  talks with Valencia, while Marseille and Inter Milan also showed interest.

    Good for you mikel instead of warming bench at the bridge.I know that your moving to china was about the money but hey, who will not jump for that kind of offer?I read about Valencia,Marseilles and inter-milan inquiring about the star but he chooses china instead .Can’t wait to see you in Europe.My friend brother once played in china and he told us then Chinese football is about running are you ready to run mikel?My believe is that players moving to china,Saudi,Qatar,USA etc are players looking for more money and at the twilight of their career.Mikel you have more years ahead of you.You are just 29 according to you so please see off 3yrs of your contract and move to Europe where we can be seeing your football but on another thought i see you staying for more years or even retiring in china if the money will keep flowing, i don’t see mikel as a “waka about” I wish you good luck in china bro.
