London - Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is
interested in reuniting with former player John Obi Mikel.
Mikel has not played competitive football for Chelsea this
season following his return from the Rio 2016 Olympics in August, where he
helped Nigeria win bronze medal.
Mourinho is now ready to take advantage with a cut-price New
Year offer to land Mikel at Old Trafford, according to The Sun.
It will be the second time Mourinho has signed Obi, who he
believes can play in a defensive midfield role in front of the back four.
