Mikel John Obi's future looks to be slowly getting a bit clearer as he's now apparently got three concrete offers on the table to move on from Chelsea this January, including the one from Marseille, with whom he was supposedly already in "advanced discussions" last week.
This latest report comes from ESPN's Colin Udoh, who also confrms that in addition to the offers from the aforementioned three teams at the top, Mikel had rejected an offer from China, choosing football and family stability over a massive move to the other side of the globe.
Udoh's source is expecting a final decision after the festive period is over.
While Mikel has been a regular participant in training ever since he got back from the Olympics in September, the 29-year-old has yet to make the bench this season, let alone feature in the first-team. After a decade at Chelsea, it looks like he's moving on to something new.
