Quit Chelsea for Marseille, Drogba tells Mikel


Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba, has urged Mikel Obi to leave the Premier League club for Olympique Marseille following his continued struggles at the West London side this season.

 Also a former Nigeria international, Henry Nwosu, advised the Chelsea midfielder to take the bold step and head for the French club in the January transfer window.

Mikel has yet to play any game for Chelsea under new manager, Antonio Conte, despite his good form at the Rio 2016 Olympics, where he won a bronze medal, and for the Super Eagles under German coach, Gernot Rohr, who has stuck to his captain.

The 29-year-old has choices aplenty in Europe as Manchester United, Marseille, Inter Milan and other clubs want him while clubs in China also want his services.

Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua are reported to have offered him a £170,000-a-week deal  while Marseille, who are currently struggling in the Ligue 1, would like to have him for £70,000 a week.

Former Nigeria international Nwosu and Drogba, Mikel’s former teammate at Chelsea, have advised the Nigeria captain to leave the Blues and consider the offer tabled by the French club.

Drogba believes a move to France will help Mikel stay close to his family as opposed to a move to China.

“Mikel will find relevance at Marseille. I told him how well I was treated during my time there and above all it will help him stay close to his family,” Drogba was quoted as saying by RAC1.

“Marseille are not doing badly this season and Mikel’s experience will come in handy in helping them finish the season on a high.”

And Nwosu said Mikel will find the French league good enough since he still has more years ahead of him.
