Moses Responds To Chelsea Transfer Rumours

Victor Moses has spoken out about his future amid reports Chelsea have had a bid rejected by Wigan.

Sky Sports News claimed that the European champions had a bid rejected by the Latics on Tuesday, but talks between the two club were expected to be on-going.

The Mirror claim today that Chelsea’s bid was just £4m, an offer that Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has described as ‘insulting’, and that the 21-year-old has been offered a bumper new deal to remain at the DW Stadium, which would see his wages double to around £40,000-a-week.

Dave Whelan is quoted as saying in the Mirror:

“We’ve made him a very good offer – involving a doubling of his wages – over the next three years,” he said.

“It’s down to whether the lad himself listens to sense, or whether he listens to his agent.”

However, the same paper also have quotes from the player, who claims if it was up to him “the highest bidder would take the day”. When asked about interest from Chelsea, Moses said:

“Now that I’m done with the national team, my attention should switch to the transfer window,” said Moses.

“I’ve heard a lot of offers are on the table. First of all, Wigan have the final say, but for me, the highest bidder would take the day. But right now, I’m still a DW faithful.”

Moses is quoted as saying in the Mirror.

The Mirror take the stance that with this statement, Moses suggests he will join the club who offer him the most money, basically portraying him as a money-grabber.

However, we happen to think the player meant that if it was up to him, the club who offered WIGAN the most money for his services, would sign him. Of course nobody really knows exactly what he meant other than Victor Moses, but one thing that does look certain is that the Nigerian attacker is set for a move this summer.

    Moses is just an average player we need experienced players like Cavan,Hulk and Jovetic because one signing can not replace Drogba he was Chelsea

    I like Victor Mosese because he is a man of speed, square the ball a round and he is also a displine player i the way he played..If the deal about Hulk is failed we chelsea fans need moses to replaced Drodga.

    I dont think he should come to Chelsea for his own good. He’ll hardly play and hinder his development. If Chelsea were to sign him, he should go straight back to the DW on loan

    I am a nigerian and a chelsea fan, the truth is that I do not want moses to come to chelsea for so many reasons,1. He is still developing into a world class attacker and he needs all the playing time he can get 2.if he goes to chelsea, he won’t be able to cement a place for we have a lot of young talents competing for limited and similar spots, so it will be unwise for him to come and retard his growth 3.he won’t be respected as he is at wigan, because RDM will prefer names that are more accomplished and experienced unlike moses that still needs time to convince everybody that he is as gud as he is projecting and promising to be 4.I would not want him to end up like affelay, bojan, lukaku who were all impressive players before going to a club that gives them less playing time, a footballer needs playing time to develop properly if not their talents would just rot dead.
