What is John Obi-Mikel’s Net Worth?
John Obi-Mikel is a Nigerian football player who has a net worth of $45 million. John Obi Mikel, who was born in Jos, Nigeria, in 1987, is a midfielder for Chelsea and a member of the Nigerian national team.
At the age of 12, Mikel was selected for the Pepsi Football Academy, which marked the beginning of his professional career. He was a member of the FIFA Under-17 World Championships and he represented Nigeria there.
He was rated the second-best player in the competition while he was there and guided Nigeria to the finals. In 2005, it was declared that Mikel would sign with Manchester United, but a few days later, Chelsea also made a statement claiming to have reached a deal with Mikel.
Following an appearance with Manchester United at a press conference, Mikel decided to sign a deal with the European squad. A few weeks later, it was claimed that Michael disappeared while watching a game from the stands, leading Manchester United to accuse Chelsea of kidnapping the football star.
It was eventually discovered that Mikel had traveled to London, where he asserted that Manchester United had forced him to sign a contract without seeing an attorney and that he had intended to represent Chelsea.
After almost a year, a deal was reached between Chelsea and Mikel’s present team, Lyn Oslo. Chelsea was thus able to secure a contract with the Nigerian talent in 2006.
In addition to winning Chelsea Young Player of the Year in 2007 and 2008 and African Young Player of the Year in 2005 and 2006, Mikel has won a number of individual honors. He was chosen for the squad of the 2014 FIFA World Cup-bound Nigerian national team.
His compensation for the year 2017 was 7.28 million pounds, but once he joined Trabzonspor, it was 1.5 million pounds (N607 million) per season. Currently, excluding endorsements, and under the terms of his contract with his current club Stoke City, he makes $25 million a year.
