According to journalist Simon Phillips, Manchester United are “very interested” in purchasing midfielder Moises Caicedo of Brighton & Hove Albion. Caicedo is now a member of Albion.
The Red Devils are one of numerous teams who have been said to have an interest in the promising 21-year-old over the past few months, and a move to Old Trafford could be on the horizon for the player in question.
According to a report that was published not so long ago in The Mirror, Brighton are reportedly getting ready to cash in on Caicedo, and teams like Newcastle United, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea are said to be interested in him.
It has been stated that the Seagulls intend to ask for £85 million for their prized possession, who still has two and a half years left on the remaining portion of his deal that pays him £10,000 per week.
Caicedo has stated in the past that it is his “goal” to play for the 20-time English champions, which may give Erik ten Hag’s squad the confidence they need to win the race for Caicedo’s contract and become the club’s next star player.

United was unable to get the services of Frenkie de Jong over the summer, but they were successful in signing Christian Eriksen and Casemiro to bolster the strength of their midfield and defense, respectively.
Phillips has disclosed to GiveMeSport that United and Chelsea are both interested in luring Caicedo away from the Amex Stadium. Caicedo currently plays for the Brighton and Hove Albion.
He stated that “Manchester United are also quite keen on him as well,” indicating that there are other clubs interested in him. I don’t think anything will be done for Caicedo in January; I think it will be in the summer instead.
Ten Hag witnessed the departures of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic from the Theatre of Dreams during the previous transfer window, and it is widely expected that Fred will leave the club on a free transfer the following summer.
United does have the option to extend the Brazil international’s stay by an additional year, but it is easy to understand why the club may want to enhance their engine room options even more. United has the option to extend the Brazil international’s stay by an additional year.
