The Guardian have managed to get Chelsea fans looking up with alarm here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Blues could well be set to see John Obi Mikel leave the club.
The midfielder has long been linked with a move away from the club, and has to be one of the most divisive Chelsea players the Blues have, but as one of our punters notes over a couple of pints over by the bar, we think he is worth keeping.
To have lasted so long in west London, the player must have been doing something right, and we think Jose Mourinho should reject all offers for him.
According to reports, Besiktas are keen on the player, and while he would be a good addition for them, we don’t think the Blues can afford to lose him!
Our resident Chelsea fans here in the Tavern feel Mikel can still do a job at the club, and it’d be a shame to see him leave west London!
Chelsea fans. Is this a move you want to come off or is Mikel someone who does you a job when you need him the most and has the experience to play in the latter stages of the Champions League? Let us know your thoughts below!
