Mikel’s agent John Shittu confirmed that the midfielder has gotten offers from China.
“There are few clubs in Europe and Asia, they are numerous and are interested in him because he is a quality player, aged only 29, and we just have to speak, so we will see. A lot of interest is there,” Shittu told Goal.
“We have been having a meeting with a few parties who are interested in him, once we are able to agree on the way forward with Chelsea, then we will take it from there."
Shittu also revealed that Mikel and Antonio have been speaking about his future and a decision will be reached soon.
