Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte, has offered some advice to Nigeria international, Victor Moses, following reports suggesting that Moses is on the wish list of FC Barcelona in the upcoming January transfer window.
Moses, who has been converted from a winger into a full-back by Antonio Conte, has been doing amazingly well in that position.
The fleet-footed star has scored three goals in 13 games this term with a couple of assists and Man-of-the-match displays to his name.
Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s next game against Tottenham Hotspur, Conte was direct in his advice for Moses and his teammates that may be in similar scenario.
“For everything [regarding contracts], there is the right time to speak,” Conte told a press conference at Cobham Training Centre. “About Victor, I repeat, it’s important to be focused on the present. It’s important to be focused game by game.
“Now we are doing very well. But, for me, I don’t want to think that my players see ‘so long’ (into the future). I like to think my players are focused on the present, not the future so long-term.
“We have just started in this league and, after a period, two bad defeats, we won six games in a row. This is important, now, to continue this. To be focused, to work for the present. Not to look at the future.”
It is yet to be seen if Moses will fancy a move to Spain or build on the momentum he already has with his London club hoping to capture the Premier League title this term.
Barcelona have had at least two Nigerians played for their senior team in time past. The duo are Emmanuel Amuneke and Gbenga Okunowo who stared for the Spanish outfits in the 90s.
