Chelsea Transfer News: Blues Set For Crunch Talks Over £10m Midfielder
Chelsea are set to hold crunch talks with Wigan Athletic this weekend over the signing of Victor Moses, according to the Daily Mail.
The Blues travel to the DW Stadium for their Premier League opener on Sunday and it’s believed officials from the two clubs will sit down after the game to finally try and trash out a deal.
The European champions have been tracking the Nigerian attacker all summer but have so far been unable to agree terms with Wigan.
The Latics are demanding £10m – with £7m up front and £3m in add ons – for the 24-year-old, who has only one year left on his current contract.
Chelsea have already agreed personal terms with the player but have refused to meet Wigan owner Dave Whelan’s demands in terms of a transfer fee, and manager Roberto Martinez has now warned he would rather see the player go for nothing next summer than sell him on the cheap now.
‘I would rather lose Victor for nothing next summer than let another club get him for less than he is worth.’
Martinez is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail
The player wants to move to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea want the player, and Wigan understand they have to sell if a decent offer comes in. In all likely-hood, a compromise will be reached on Sunday and the deal will go through next week.
