Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel is not ruling out a return to Stamford Bridge in the future according to the Daily Post Nigeria.

The 30-year-old twice-crowned English Premier League winner currently plays his football in the Chinese Super League after joining Chinese club Tianjin TEDA from Chelsea on a free transfer in January.

Despite Mikel having not featured in Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s initial plans upon his arrival at Stamford Bridge, it has been reported in the Nigerian media that the midfielder would like to return to the South West London club one day and wear the famous blue shirt once more.

Mikel spent over a decade as a Chelsea player after joining the club from Norwegian outfit Lyn in September 2006 when The Blues eventually beat English Premier League rivals Manchester United to the Nigerian’s signature.

The midfielder went on to make 374 appearances for Chelsea in which he scored six goals for the club. Mikel won a whole host of honours with The Blues including four FA Cups, two League Cups, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League in addition to two league titles.

The player will forever be a legend at The Bridge and will always be warmly welcomed back to the club by the fans.
