There were some reports circulating on the internet after Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah were offloaded by Chelsea in the January transfer window.
According to the stokesentinel, Mourinho wanted to terminate the season-long loan of Victor Moses prematurely and bring him back to Stamford Bridge, as the Portuguese looked to strengthen his title-chasing squad. However, the Nigerian International preferred to remain with the Potters for the rest of the season where he is a nailed-on starter.
Recently, the pacy winger was asked about his future at Stoke and here’s what he had to say:
“I just want to help Stoke as best as I can to finish as high as I can. As I’ve said before, I’m still a Chelsea player. I’m here to do a professional job for Stoke. I will do my best to help Stoke finish in the top eight. That’s my aim.”
“It’s been nice to hear the manager say he’d like me to stay. He’s a great manager and he’s done well for this club. Before I came here I spoke to him and it looked like the club was heading in the right direction. That’s the main reason I came here on loan. I’m enjoying my football here and the style of play suits me.”
Frankly, there’s nothing wrong with a player enjoying his time with his team where he is a regular starter, a fan favorite and obviously one of the best players on the pitch.
Now, we might not be sure as to what the future holds for Moses, but one thing is clear; with the kind of firepower Chelsea have got in the AM position, it might be difficult for Moses to break into this Chelsea side.
Although, with the kind of performances he has been generating for Stoke this season, if we do decide to sell him in the summer, we are looking for a hefty profit anyway, so that would be a win-win situation for both the parties involved!
On the flip side; who knows, maybe Mourinho does have some plans for the former Wigan player next season! Guess we will have to just wait and watch!
