Powerhouse admits he wants to be at Chelsea after five-year deal was signed

John Obi-Mikel is confident the arrival of Cesc Fabregas will not force him out of Chelsea this summer.

Fabregas completed his £27m move from Barcelona to Chelsea prior to the start of the World Cup, signing a five-year deal worth close to £200,000-a-week.

And his arrival has led to talk that Chelsea will no longer need Mikel in the squad, as they already have a number of midfielders.

However, despite this, the 27-year-old insists he remains fully committed to Chelsea and cannot wait to link up with Fabregas.

As quoted on the Daily Express website, he said: “I don’t have a problem with the signing of Cesc Fabregas.

“We have played against each other a lot of times. We don’t play in the same position anyway.

“Chelsea are my home away from home, my second home. You never know what’s going to happen in football, but I’m very happy at Chelsea and I want to remain at Chelsea.

“I still have three years left on my contract and want to stay there.

“I want to congratulate Cesc with his transfer and I’m looking forward to playing with him.”
