Fergie still on Mikel trail


SIR Alex Ferguson broke off his summer holiday in a bid to secure the signing of Nigerian teenager Jon Obi Mikel, according to a report.

SIR Alex Ferguson broke off his summer holiday in a bid to secure the signing of Nigerian teenager Jon Obi Mikel, according to a report.

Mikel seemed to have signed for United last month, but then publicly stated a desire to join Chelsea claiming he had been "coerced" into joining the Reds.

The saga has seen two of the Premiership's powerhouses go head-to-head, and Ferguson is determined to land a player who he rates very highly.

To that end, Ferguson and his youth academy director Jim Ryan flew out to Emmen, in Holland, where Nigeria were playing Brazil in the World Youth Championships, according to The Guardian.

It is not known whether Ferguson managed to speak to Mikel, but the trip was unannounced for fear of alerting Chelsea.

Ferguson has recently been given hope in his quest for the player by Daniel Fletcher, the player's agent, who in a letter to the Premier League and Football Association said Mikel still would like to join the Reds.
