Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are raising their glasses in appreciation to positive action from the West London side, as the club consider offering an in-form player a new deal.
Mikel was out of favour under the Portuguese boss but has developed into a crucial player in Guus Hiddink’s reign at Stamford Bridge, scoring a decisive away goal in the Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain last week.
With the Nigerian midfielder approaching the final year of his contract at Chelsea, the Blues are considering fresh terms to ensure they don’t lose a crucial midfielder.
However, the defending Premier League champions will be concerned that their new boss this summer, whoever that may be, may not have a place for Mikel in his side.
Our landlord feels Chelsea have to act and give Mikel fresh terms, stating that if he’s not wanted by the new boss then they can sell for a higher price this summer anyway.
Chelsea fans, does Mikel deserve a new contract? Let us know in the comments below!
