Manchester United reach €90 million fee with Chelsea for Victor Moses

Manchester United have agreed on a world record deal to sign Victor Moses for €90 million on 1st April, Goal understands.
The Nigeria international has been in fine form this season for Antonio Conte’s rampant Chelsea side despite playing in an unfamiliar defensive role.
According to Manchester United representative AP Ril-Fool, the Premier League club met with their Chelsea counterparts earlier on Friday to discuss a deal to bring Moses to Old Trafford.

It is now understood that United have settled on a fee of €90m for Moses, which eclipses the previous record set when they paid €89m for Paul Pogba in 2016.
He will sign a five-year contract with the Red Devils on the first of April.
In a statement, Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck admitted the offer was too good to refuse.
“We cannot turn down a transfer of this magnitude because, generally speaking, it is the biggest in Chelsea’ history,” said Buck.
“We have been very happy to have Victor here but it is part of our strategy, as a club and a company, to develop players to a level where they get so attractive that the biggest clubs will buy them for large sums of money.”
The winger is said to be ready to accept a €14m annual salary at Old Trafford, which would almost outshine the wages he is currently earning at Chelsea.
When the player joins Manchester United, he will link up once more with the Red Devils’ boss Jose Mourinho, who is expected to offer the Nigerian to fellow Premier League clubs on a loan deal so he can prove his worth to his manager.
