The talk of yesterday’s transfer rumours was Barcelona’s interest in Victor Moses, the Chelsea winger who has looked a different player in the wing-back position.
According to ESPN‘s Liam Twomey, Conte isn’t willing to indulge such talks.
Conte doesn’t want to indulge Moses to Barca reports, rather he wants his players to be focused on keeping up their good form, Liam Twomey wrote on Twitter.

When asked about the rumours of Barcelona’s interest in Moses, Conte said: “About Victor, I repeat, it’s important to be focused on the present,” Conte told a news conference. “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.”
Moses has been outstanding since Conte’s switch to a 3-4-3 system, and his display against Middlesbrough earned him the man of the match award.
