Mikel is now gone, so here are the only two players left from Chelsea’s 2012 Champions League winning squad
Earlier in the transfer window, John Obi Mikel joined the list of Chelsea players who have made a switch to China.
Despite reports earlier dismissing such a move, it turns out the financial offer was too much to turn down.
The Nigerian international would now be flying the colors of Tiajin TEDA after making 372 times for Chelsea since joining in 2006.
His transfer also goes a long way to highlight how much things have changed since Chelsea won the 2012 Champions League against Bayern Munich.
Out of the Chelsea squad led by interim boss Roberto Di Matteo, only TWO players are left- Gary Cahill and David Luiz.
In contrast, Bayern Munich’s squad has been more stable hanging on to seven of the players from that night at the Allianz Arena.
Here a reminder of how that team looked like
Petr Cech (Left: 2015) and Ryan Bertrand (left 2015) were the latest players to leave before Mikel joined them.
