Mikel Obi confirms negotiations with Brazilian club Botafogo after leaving Trabzonspor over Coronavirus pandemic  

Former Super Eagles of Nigeria and Chelsea player John Mikel Obi has confirmed he is discussing a possible deal with Brazilian club Botafogo over a month since he left Turkish club Trabzonspor over the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Mikel, 32, left Turkish club Trabzonspor by mutual authorization in February after declaring that he did not feel relaxed playing during the COVID-19 pandemic while individuals were getting infected and dying all over the world and it hasn’t taken long for him to start receiving new offers 

Mikel is already in regular connection with Botafogo boss Ricardo Rotenberg and hopes to iron out an agreement as soon as the Coronavirus pandemic is over.

Mikel speaking to ESPN about Botafago’s involvement in signing him, stated: “Yes there has been interest and yes there has been negotiations.

“But I don’t know yet. I am still thinking about it. Not certain yet.”
