Inter Milan of Italy winger, Victor Moses has again been hit with a cloud of uncertainty over his future with the Italian Serie A club, as his name has now cropped up among five listed to be in doubt for contract extensions this summer, megasportsarena.com reports.
In spite of hope rising that came for Moses last weekend, when a different line of thought was raised from permutations that Inter are ready to buy him at a reduced transfer fee, below the 10m pounds his parent club, Chelsea are asking for, the latest angle to the story states that the former Super Eagles star could jolly well be on his way out of San Siro at the end of this season.
With Moses having been unable to tie down a regular spot in The Nerazzurri’s squad, despite having arrived on a high as a possible favoured child of his former coach at Chelsea, Antonio Conte, he has now been named alongside Diego Godin, Kwadwo Asamoah, Cristiano Biraghi and Matias Vecino as five players heading for Inter’s exit door this summer.
A report by FCInterNews.it disclosed that The Nerazzurri have no plans to sign Moses on a full contract in the summer, in spite of earlier information that they would be ready to look at a deal if Chelsea agree to lower their current asking price of 10m euros for the player they loaned to the Italian Serie A side in the January transfer window.
The Italian club’s spending power has to a large extent been affected by the novel coronavirus pandemic, which is leaving a negative effect on the finances of many clubs, such that Inter are not in a hurry to seek full contract from Chelsea for Moses, whose current deal with The Blues expires in June 2021.
Ironically, Chelsea are not keen on having the 29-year-old Moses back, considering that he was unable to hold his own in only seven competitive games for Inter and went the distance in just one, which was against PFK Ludogorets in the UEFA Europa League.
Consequently, similar reports by sempreinter.com and Turin-based sports daily, Tuttosport have revealed that Moses, who spent the first half of this season on loan at Fernebahce of Turkey, is among five players facing uncertain futures, as he continues being linked with Inter’s exit door.
The reports add that it is unlikely The Nerazzurri will activate the option they have to buy him on a permanent deal, as they are already targeting several younger full-backs in the upcoming transfer window, which means he will have to return to Chelsea and await their next decision.
Should Moses fail to get himself into the plans of Chelsea’s boss, Frank Lampard, he would most likely be sold this summer, as The Blues would want to guide against losing him for free when his contract ends in June 2021.
That would mark the end of a really chequered career for Chelsea’s joint-longest serving player, along with César Azpilicueta, as he has spent only three full seasons at the club since his arrival in August 2012, with Inter becoming the fifth club where he would spend time on loan, after previous spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United of England as well as Fenerbahce.
