John Obi Mikel is the talk of the Football Transfer Tavern after the Daily Mail provided some gossip over his future and Chelsea fans cannot wait to hear what our landlord has to say.
As he pours a pint, our landlord notes that Mikel is attracting rather a lot of interest from Valencia, and the La Liga side may be willing to put in a bid for the long serving midfielder.
As our punters point out over a beer and a burger combo, it seems that Mikel is a popular boy with not only Valencia but also Inter Milan keen on the defensive midfielder.
It seems that this summer, nearly all of Chelsea’s midfielders seem to be attracting interest from a host of different sides and with the departures of not only Frank Lampard but also David Luiz, we are not sure Jose Mourinho really wants to allow anyone else to leave.
Mikel would be willing to stay at Chelsea but wants assurances over his future and indeed over the fact that manger Mourinho will include him in his starting eleven – something we do not think will happen next term.
