"I want to be here next season" – Chelsea star speaks out on his future


Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel says he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge amid suggestions he will be offloaded by Jose Mourinho this summer.

The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to United Arab Emirates club Al Ain and Fenerbahce in Turkey but he revealed that boss Jose Mourinho wants him to stay at least for one more season.

"I want to stay and the manager wants me to stay," Mikel told Chelsea's official website.

"I've got two years [on my contract] here and I'm happy.

"I like to be somewhere where I have developed friends and family. It's like my family here and every day I come to work it is like coming in to see my family.

"I know all the players and all the staff so it's going to be a hard place to leave when my contract runs out but let's see what happens. I want to see out my two years.

"We are here to work hard, and we are here to train hard leading to the Community Shield and to the league.

"I think we're on the right course. That game [the defeat against New York Red Bulls] was just a one-off game and we know we need to go back to training, buckle up and know the season is starting soon."
