(Image) John Obi Mikel says farewell to the China bound teammate Oscar – but could he follow in his footsteps?

John Obi Mikel has taken to Twitter to wave goodbye to out-going teammate Oscar, as the Brazilian agrees to join Shanghai SIPG.

The Daily Star report that Chelsea will receive a staggering £60 million in exchange for Oscar, and he will earn an eye-watering £400,000-a-week.

Could Mikel himself be tempted by the astronomical wages that are on offer in the Chinese Super League? The Sun report that he could well be. The tabloid quote his agent revealing that Mikel has had offers from China, and that they are weighing up the best move for the Nigerian; who is also expected to leave Chelsea next month.

For now, however, this is a nice sentiment from the Chelsea veteran.
