Victor Moses could reportedly find his hopes of securing a permanent deal with Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan dashed over a cash wrangle with Chelsea.
Inter’s former Chelsea chief Antonio Conte wants to make a move on his old club Chelsea in the summer transfer market for Moses.
Conte, who led Chelsea to the PL title in 2016 and the FA Cup in 2017 before walking away from the side, will go back for two of his former players when this season eventually ends.
Conte wants to make Nerazzurri’s loan deal for Chelsea forward Moses, which runs out a the end of this season, a permanent deal, with will cost the Italian giants around £8m as a condition of the loan agreement.
The 29-year-old Moses, who spent last season on loan at Turkish club Fenerbahce, is also interested in the deal.
But Inter board do not want to pay a sum for a player who will be out of contract next year. He has dubbed it an “honour” to work with Antonio again.
“It’s an honour to link up once again with an important figure in my career,” the powerful wing-back said.
“He is my mentor and friend. I have played under a lot of managers and I’ve loved every single one of them. The most important one was Antonio Conte.
“At Chelsea he just came in and changed everything. He is an amazing man; he totally changed my game to be honest.
“He gave me that fighting spirit to believe in myself and to enjoy my football same time.”
