The last time we heard of Victor Moses, Inter Milan were either trying to bring down his asking price or not looking to buy him at all. It would appear that the situation remains pretty much the same a month later, but with a stronger impetus to reach a resolution one way or another, which should benefit for all parties involved.

According to Fabrizio Romano (for Calciomercato), Inter Milan are unwilling to pay the €12m as stipulated in the buy-option of Moses’ loan deal, especially after the loss of income from the pandemic. They would prefer to negotiate a lower sum and are willing to walk away if Chelsea refuse to entertain their demand. They apparently have 18-year-old Tibo Persyn lined up in that case, even though head coach Antonio Conte would prefer more experienced players.

Then again, there is no real reason for Chelsea not to accede to Inter’s demands and lower the already-low asking price. Director Granovskaia is known for being able to extract maximum value from transfers, but she may have her work cut out on this one — for relatively low return either way.
