Knee Chip Question

I've been looking at rescue horses lately and I came upon a horse I've really really favored. The horse is located close to here and is within my price range so I was thinking about maybe looking into him. But there's one problem, he has an "old knee chip." His description says he is sound and I've watched several videos of him and he seems perfectly fine, infact his gait looks very comfortable. He's still young, 6 years old to be precise, and I was wondering if I did purchase him, would the "old knee chip" cause a problem in the future?

P.S- Sorry if this is the wrong Forum, I'm new and haven't quite gotten used to things yet.

I would get a pre purchase exam, tell the vet about it, he'll be able to let you know after looking, prodding and inspecting the knee.
