Former Super Eagles star Victor Moses has made a sensational demand of £2.86m as ‘assurance fee' from Fenerbahce, just in case the club gets relegated after joining them.
The report at the weekend said the Istanbul-based side were still keen on adding the Chelsea winger to their squad this month but, though Fenerbahce have reached an agreement with Chelsea for Moses, the winger is holding out for possible damages.
Apart from a princely assurance fee, Moses is also seeking 200,000 euros in bonus fee, if he helps Fernebahce avoid relegation while preparing a cushion in the event that he failed to save them from demotion.
The former Super Eagles star's caution is based on the startling reality that Fenerbahce are in the Turkish Super Lig relegation zone after the first stanza, as The Yellow Navy Blues sit 17th on the 18-team table with 16 points.
Austin Okocha, Uche Okechukwu, Joseph Yobo and Emmanuel Emenike have all once been on the club's cards who are just four points ahead of last-placed Rizespor and are seeking reinforcements to ward off relegation.
Now, for Fenerbahce to secure Moses on loan from Chelsea, they will have to cough out his full wages for five months, which amounts to somewhere near £2.86m in total.
