John Obi Mikel to leave Chelsea in the summer?

Mikel desperate to leave the Blues

Nigerian international John Obi Mikel has reportedly decided to seek a move away from Chelsea during the summer transfer window, as per The Daily Mail.

The talented holding midfielder has fallen down the pecking order under manager Jose Mourinho this season, following the signing of Nemanja Matic from Benfica during the winter transfer window.

In spite of having three years left on his current deal with the Blues, Mikel is expected to ask to leave the West London outfit during the summer in a bid to play regular first-team football elsewhere.

Mikel has attracted interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray in recent weeks.
