Chelsea winger, Victor Moses is heading closer to the exit door at Stamford Bridge, as The Blues’ gaffer, Mauricio Sarri has admitted that the Nigerian star has no place in his squad.
Footballlive.ng can report that the Italian gaffer hinted as much on Thursday evening, with a terse reaction, after queries from the British media over the continued absence of Moses in the match day squad.
With Moses again missing from The Blues’ squad that scrapped out a 3-2 win against visiting lower division, Derby County in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, Sarri said it was only because he does not where the 27-year-old Nigerian can fit in.
Dramatically, Chelsea youth team graduates, Calum Hudson Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheeks are now ahead of Moses, thereby raising strong permutations that the ex-Super Eagles star is bound to leave Stamford Bridge in January.
Latest info reaching footballlive.ng out of Queensland indicates further that Sarri has already held clear-the-air talks with Moses and told the star he is not in plans for the team, hence his absence on Wednesday.
Moses has has made only one start this season and was a surprise omission from the squad against Derby, despite training with the team the previous day.
However, additional information reveals that his former coach at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho, who is now in charge at Manchester United, is on the hunt for Moses.
Mourinho actually needs a new striker, as both Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford have not totally convinced this season with only five goals between them in 24 competitive games, but Moses could fit in.
The three attack-minded players being considered by the old Trafford outfit are Moses, Eintracht Frankfurt’s Croatia star Ante Rebic and AS Roma’s Cengiz ünder.
After joining Chelsea in August 2012, Moses was farmed out on loan to Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United before the arrival of The Blues’ former manager, Antonio Conte.
The 27-year-old winger, who has a contract with Chelsea until June 30, 2021, found his range under Conte, but things have gone back to his ugly early days at Stamford Bridge, and he is heading out again.
