Manchester United are reportedly planning to enter the transfer race for Brighton & Hove Albion star Moises Caicedo.
The 21-year-old has made huge progress since joining the Seagulls in the winter transfer window of 2021.
The Ecuadorian footballer has now established himself as a key member of the team, starting all 14 Premier League matches this season.
Sky Sport Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg claims that the Red Devils are planning to enter the race for Caicedo.
Their bitter rivals Liverpool are also said to be interested in the young player as a backup option in case they are unsuccessful in their pursuit of Jude Bellingham. However, Brighton are hoping to extend his stay beyond 2023.
United have been linked with the talented midfielder even before his arrival to England.
They could have signed him for a small fee when he was still at Independiente del Valle. But now they will likely have to part with a huge sum to secure his services.
Caicedo is a top-class midfielder who has already made a name for himself in the Premier League.
The 21-year-old is currently involved with Ecuador at the 2022 World Cup. He started both matches against Qatar and Netherlands and was impressive with his performances.
The Brighton star has earned 180 minutes so far in the competition, averaging 2.5 tackles, 1.0 interceptions and 0.5 clearances per game. He also completed 84 percent of his passes (as per Whoscored).
Caicedo is very dominant in the air and is also highly rated for his tackling and concentration.
United will likely have to spend a hefty sum to seal his transfer but considering his talent, they should definitely try to sign him.
