World Cup star not concerned with Stamford Bridge future.
Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has insisted that the recent arrival of Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas will not force him out of Stamford Bridge this summer, according to the Daily Star.
Former Arsenal skipper Fabregas completed his lucrative £27m move to west London just before the World Cup kicked off at the start of the month, penning a five-year deal believed to be worth around £200,000 per week.
Blues enforcer Mikel, currently preparing with Nigeria ahead of their last-16 tie against France, struggled to hold down a regular first-team place last season following the return of Jose Mourinho as manager.
But despite the speculation surrounding his future Mikel has insisted that he cannot wait to link up with the Spaniard ahead of the new Premier League season.
“I don’t have a problem with the signing of Cesc Fabregas,” Mikel said.
“We have played against each other a lot of times. We don’t play in the same position anyway.
“Chelsea are my home away from home, my second home. You never know what’s going to happen in football, but I’m very happy at Chelsea and I want to remain at Chelsea.
“I still have three years left on my contract and want to stay there.
“I want to congratulate Cesc with his transfer and I’m looking forward to playing with him.”
Serie A giants Inter Milan had been looking to bring the Nigerian international to the San Siro this summer, but so far no concrete offer has materialised.
