Indian Super League top scorer Miku hints at moving to China, wants club to increase his salary

Bengaluru FC forward Miku revealed that he had received an offer from a Chinese club and urged his India Super League side to increase his salary if they wanted to keep him

Miku has been the vital player in Bengaluru squad this year. His 15 goals helped his side storm into the ISL final, though they suffered a defeat to Chennaiyin in an enthralling final on Saturday.

“I have an offer from a China club,” Miku told a sports channel after the ISL final, as quoted by the Press Trust of India.

“If they (BFC) need to keep me, they need to do something to increase my budget.

“The clubs in China pay six or seven times more than in India,” the ISL top scorer added.

On the other hand, Miku emphasized that he needed to think of his family and future.

“The club (BFC) don’t want to sell me. Two times, two different clubs from China (have approached me). I understand they want me here but I need to think of my family, of my future,” he said.

Starting his professional career in his homeland Venezuela, Miku then spent most of his career in Spain. The 32-year-old represented Spanish top-flight outfits including Valencia, Getafe and Rayo Vallecano, and won a Scottish double while on loan at Celtic in 2013.

In August 2017, Miku joined Indian Super League franchise Bengaluru FC on a two-year contract from Rayo Vallencano.
