Moses sets to rejoin Conte at Inter
Former Super Eagles winger Victor Moses is set to join his former coach Antonio Conte at Internationale Milan on loan with an initial €10 million option to buy embedded in the deal, according to reports from Italy.
In a prematch interview for tomorrow’s cracker against Arsenal, Frank Lampard confirmed the 29-year-old have been recalled from ongoing loan spell at Fenerbache, to prepare him for another spell in the blue and black color of the Nerrazuris.
“On Victor Moses he’s obviously coming back from his loan with a view to going elsewhere, and those talks are ongoing as well.” The Chelsea manager said.
Moses enjoyed a swell time blitzing down the right wing of Conte’s 2016-17 title winning team. He fitted snugly into the wing back role assigned him by the Italian, becoming a mainstay in a swashbuckling 3-4-3 style of football that swept through all tiers of English football. However, Conte’s successor, Mauricio Sarri deemed him surplus to requirement and forced him out to Turkish side Fenerbache.
He has played just six times this season due to a long-term thigh injury but is nearing a return to full fitness.
He isn’t the only Nigerian moving from clubs where they’ve endured stagnation for greener pastures that they are in one way or another familiar with. Moses Simon Daddy left Levante for FC Nantes late last year, and has been doing well ever since. Henry Onyekuru also unshackled himself from the repressive hold of AS Monaco and escaped to Galatasaray, a familiar terrain where he’s flourished.
It is hoped that the energetic Conte will help resuscitate the deeming sparkles of the retired Eagle like he did few years back to raving applause.
Moses retired from international football immediately after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, citing needs to concentrate fully on club football.
