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.”
