Reports revealed that Chelsea midfielder and Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, has been offered an incredible $212,000-a-week deal by Chinese club, Shanghai SIPG.
The offer was allegedly made after Nigeria’s 3-1 win over Algeria in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Uyo, where he scored the second goal.
Mikel Obi is yet to play a single minute under new Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte and has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in January.
Shanghai SIPG is rated third in terms of wealth and revenue in the Chinese league and the club is currently managed by former Chelsea coach, Andre Villas-Boas.
Mikel Obi rejected a move to another Chinese club, Shanghai Shenhua, last season. Former Nigeria striker Obafemi Martins currently plays there.
