It’s looking increasingly unlikely that Turkish giants Fenerbahce will sign ex-Nigeria international Victor Moses on a permanent deal.
Media reports on Tuesday indicate that Fenerbahce are concerned they might no longer be able to meet up with the winger’s high wage demands.
Several British media have reported that the twenty-eight-year-old Chelsea player is currently on £75,000 -a- week wages.
Sources inside Fenerbahce have been quoted as saying that the Turkish club cannot afford to pay Moses that much, added to the fee needed to sign him.
In January 2018, The former Super Eagles star linked up with Fenerbahce from Chelsea on an eighteen-month loan deal, with a purchase option inserted in the agreement.
Moses’ contract with Chelsea is due to expire in 2021, whereby the winger will be available to leave on a cut-price deal next summer.
He scored four goals in fourteen league appearances for Fenerbahce last season.
The ex-international, who retired from the Super Eagles after Russia-2018 World Cup, has had lone spells with Liverpool, West Ham United and Stoke City.
Apart from failing to qualify for Europe last season, Fenerbahce are also facing sanctions for falling short on UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rule that required the club to balance spending with revenue.
