Chelsea winger Victor Moses is currently on loan with Turkish giants Fenerbahce. The Nigeria international went on loan since last season, and his loan deal with Fenerbahce will end at the end of this season.
Moses is doing well at the moment for Fenerbahce, and the Turkish club have the option to buy him permanently but are unwilling to use that option.
Fenerbahce are said to be reluctant to pay his £75,000-a-week wages, in addition to the fee required to sign him.
Fenerbahce are in financial troubles at the moment and are facing sanctions from UEFA for a failure to reach UEFA’s Financial Fair Play target that required them to balance spending with revenue. They also struggled last season and failed to qualify for Europe.
However, they’ve had a good start to the season and are currently second in the league with two wins and a draw from three games.
Moses was key for Fenerbahce last season as he scored four goals in 14 Super Lig appearances and he started this season with fine form, with a goal and an assist in the 5-0 win over Gazisehir on August 19, but also suffered a muscle injury in that game and has missed their following two matches.
Moses’ contract with Chelsea expires in 2021 and it will make him available to leave on a cut-price deal next summer.
Fenerbahce are willing to let Moses leave the club at the end of the season as they can’t afford him.
Moses was key for Chelsea under former boss Antonio Conte as he featured predominantly in a right wing-back position and helped the Blues win the Premier League title in Conte’s first season in charge. Maurizio Sarri didn’t see a need for the Nigerian international as he switched to a 4-3-3 system, ditching the 3-4-3 system that was used by Conte.
