Mikel now earn N54m-a-week JOHN OBI MIKEL  looks set to be the latest big name to make the mega-money move to China. The Chelsea midfielder will reportedly complete his medical at Tianjin TEDA on Thursday after agreeing a deal to earn a whopping £140,000-a-week. Mikel, who hasn’t even made the bench at Stamford Bridge this season, looked set to join Valencia having turned his back on the Chinese Super League. According to English Club sources, the 29-year-old has had a change of heart after a three-year deal was put on the table.

Mikel will leave Chelsea a fan favourite having won three Premier League titles, two FA Cups, one Champions League and one Europa League amongst others. A figure for the transfer is still unknown but the two sides are confident that a deal can be agreed once Mikel completes his medical. And Chelsea may use the funds made from the sales of Oscar and Mikel to land Napoli ace Faouzi Ghoulam. Antonio Conte is keen to bolster his defensive options at this crucial stage of the season. The Italian is also willing to let midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek leave on loan with Brighton keen on his services.   Antonio Conte Europa Medical mutual of ohio
