Chelsea FC Transfer News: Alvaro Morata, Victor Moses, Matt Miazga


Heading down the home stretch of the January transfer window, Chelsea FC have been doing some Chelsea FC things. The club has become synonymous with loaning out their players, and today we have news of three more loan deals to cover. So let’s just jump right in and get the party started with Victor Moses.

The 28-year-old winger has not featured for the Blues in nearly four months, and it’s quite clear that he has no real role in Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea. Moses has officially joined Turkish side Fenerbahce on loan for year and a half.

This will be the fourth time that Moses goes out on loan since joining Chelsea in 2012. He previously spent entire seasons with Liverpool, Stoke City, and West Ham. He’s also remained at Stamford Bridge for three full seasons as well.

Elsewhere, American international Matt Miazga is officially switching loan teams again. The 23-year-old had been on loan from Chelsea to French club Nantes, but he hast not featured for the Ligue 1 side since October. Now he moves on to Reading for the rest of the season, and manager Jose Gomes is excited about the idea of coaching up Miazga.

“Matt is a skillful, committed and commanding presence at the centre of defense and I am very pleased we have been able to welcome him into our family. I am now looking forward to working with him on the training pitch for the first time,” said Gomes.

With Christian Pulisic now joining Chelsea in the summer, you might see a preseason friendly in 2019 where two Americans are featured at the same time…maybe.

Finally, if it feels like the Alvaro Morata loan saga has been dragging out, and become tedious, well that’s because it is. And it’s only getting more chaotic, so we’ll see if it can all sort itself out before the January transfer window closes.

According to Goal, “Alvaro Morata’s move away from Chelsea has been delayed due to issues surrounding Gelson Martins’ proposed loan switch to Monaco.”

Morata’s move to Atletico Madrid hinges on Martins’ move to Monaco which is being impacted by Thierry Henry’s imminent sacking. So it’s transfer domino theory in action right now.
