Last month, reports out of Italy suggested that Victor Moses’ future won’t be decided before the end of the season. Now, his future may be a bit less uncertain, even as the world around us descends into ever greater uncertainty.
Perhaps that need for something solid and known is what has convinced Antonio Conte’s Inter to make plans to take up the €10m buy-option on the right winger/wing-back’s contract. That’s the word from Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness), who expect Inter to move quickly once football gets going again, especially as the next offseason and transfer window is expected to be a very short one.
Conte’s preference for players he can trust and who already know his system is well-known, and his relationship with Moses stretches back to those heady Chelsea days of a few years ago. While Inter didn’t get the chance to truly assess the 29-year-old January arrival before the coronavirus outbreak stopped the season, Conte already knows what he’s dealing with and could thus help revitalize Moses’s career for the second time.
Of course, a lot can change between now and whenever we return to some sense of normalcy, and Inter could yet try to haggle over what is already a very low fee, but at least for now, things are looking good for Moses.
