John Obi Mikel, the former star footballer from Chelsea has weighed up interest towards Botafogo; the Brazilian side for Serie A football as he is still in search of a new club after his contract with Trabzonspor, the league side from Turkey, was terminated. In recent times, he is in talks with Botafogo but has not been confirmed and no information has been reported about his move. There are higher chances of him moving to the club from Rio de Janeiro. He has not been with any club since the termination from the Turkish side last month.
He is yet to make the decision as he said that he is currently sure about his move. He is still thinking about the decision. The 32-year-old footballer has been reported to offer a contract to the Serie A football club Botafogo, but because of the pandemic, the negotiations have been slowed down. He has made 19 appearances in league matches for the Brazilian side, Trabzonspor, his old club. All these appearances were made by the former Chelsea star before the club terminated his contract.
