Nigerian midfielder Mikel Obi has ended his contract with the Chinese club Tianjin Teda, just a year before his contract with the club run out.
Mikel is certainly planning ot return to Europe for family reasons.
The The Super Eagles sensation did not travle with Tianjin first-teamers to Spain for pre-season training as he is said to be negotiating with the club to cancel his contract.
Here’s what Mikel said in an interview with Tianjin Sports New Vision program:
“I broke the contract with the club, which means I will leave Teda. As for my next stop, I am not sure yet, maybe I will return to Europe, maybe stay in China. Anyway, I would like to wish the TEDA team good luck next season.”
Mile had performed well for Tianjin Teda in the first half of the 2018 season but his remaining part was occupied with injuries just after representing Nigeria at the world cup.
As another transfer window sets in, it has been revealed that any club willing to buy Mikel could get him for as low as €3.5m, which is far below the €11m that took him to Tianjin.
