It has become increasingly clear that John Obi Mikel will leave Chelsea with the club dropping him from their squad going for a pre-season tour.

What is not clear is if Mikel will rejoin the team's pre-season tour after a week,owing to the fact that Nigeria got to the second round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

But every pointer is that Mikel has been deemed surplus to requirement with Chelsea offering him to Italian clubs for as little as £5million.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is taking a 26-man squad for the two-week European training camp,with the Nigerian not on the roster.

New signings: Cesc Fabregas,Diego Costa,Filipe Luis have been included in the team going on the tour.

Chelsea will commence their pre-season tour with a game against RZ Pellets before playing NK Olimpija Ljubljana on Sunday.
