Moses had spent the previous three seasons out on loan at Premier League rivals Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United, having moved to Stamford Bridge from Wigan Athletic in 2012.
By this he becomes the highest paid Nigerian player in Europe.
However, the winger has made the wing-back role his own this season since Conte opted to switch the Blues to a 3-4-3 formation. In the summer of 2015, Moses was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, mostly as a way to open up the door for Pedro to leave Barcelona and join up with Chelsea.
The Italian tactician has taken the Premier League by storm as he continues to lead Chelsea towards the title with 12 games remaining this season. "But I think that is one of the greatest achievements of Conte's time, is to get Diego Costa playing as he was in Mourinho's team".
However, with Old Trafford based players having already stated their intentions to avenge such a defeat, as well as United having improved significantly since this game, it will certainly not be as easy this time around.
Chelsea know they have, like Alonso on the left flank, a player who can occupy a hard wing-back role but do so with apparent ease.
Chelsea's Technical Director Michael Emenalo said: "We are extremely pleased Victor has chosen to extend his contract with us".
Super Eagles star, Victor Moses says he feels at home at Chelsea after signing a new contract with the Blues.
