Our preseason hero Victor Moses, who, according to Mourinho, was set to stay with the Blues after the form he showed, is now reported to go out on loan, again!
According to SkySports sources:
“Chelsea winger Victor Moses will join West Ham on loan before the transfer window closes on Tuesday, according to Sky Sources.”
Signed from Wigan in 2012, the Nigerian had a horrible loan spell at Liverpool in the 2013-14 season before resurrecting his career at Stoke City, a year later on loan.
The 24-year-old winger was the best performer for the Blues in the preseason and even made an appearance in the Community Shield against Arsenal before getting down with an injury.
The news comes as a stark contrast to the following comments made by Mourinho a month earlier:
“I see him fitting in. He’s (Moses) strong, he’s experienced, he knows the Premier League well, he’s fast, he’s aggressive.
“OK, he has to play with us. But I’m happy with his week, with his 45 minutes and the next match [against Paris Saint-Germain] he will have 45 more minutes. But Victor has had an evolution in the last couple of years.”

Maybe the arrival of Pedro and the talent shown by Robert Kenedy has made Mourinho rethink Moses’ future? I guess, we will have the answer to that in the next few hours. But, one thing’s for sure, if the Nigerian leaves the Bridge this time, it would most probably be a permanent transfer.
With several clubs like Tottenham Hotspurs, West Ham and West Brom interested in his services and also the fact that he is homegrown, I think we can get good money for him if we do intend to sell him.
Although, that would also mean having a couple of 19-year-old’s as a backup to Pedro, Hazard, Oscar and Willian for 3 positions! Will that be good enough?
