Bengaluru FC forward Miku has said that he has an offer from a Chinese club and has urged the ISL team to increase his salary, if it wants to keep him.

“I have an offer from a China club,” Miku told a sports channnel, after Bengaluru was beaten by Chennaiyin FC, in the final of the Indian Super League (ISL), here last night.

“If they (BFC) need to keep me, they need to do something to increase my budget,” he went on to say. However, the thought is not playing on his mind for now, as he is focused on finishing the season.

“The clubs in China pay six or seven times more than in India,” he added. Miku has been the most treasured member of Bengaluru in 2018, and was the leading goal scorer in the ISL, striking 15 times, which helped his side storm into the final.

He had expressed his disappointment after Bengaluru lost to Chennaiyin in an enthralling final. Bengaluru had become the first Indian football club to earn a transfer fee from a foreign club, after a Chinese Super League team, Zhejiang Lucheng, had signed Spanish midfielder Edu Garcia, for an undisclosed fee.

“Bengaluru was not willing to sell him, but he needs to think of his family and future,” Miku said. “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.

Miku said that the worst thing for him, while staying in India, is loneliness. “I am still young. I have come to this league to enjoy this country, but in the end, I am here alone. My family is in Spain. For me, that’s the worst thing here, because I’m alone. I don’t want to be alone more, so we need to change a lot of things to continue here,” he said.
