Man United could form “monster” duo by signing £70m “baller”

Posted by

Manchester United are believed to be showing interest in Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder, Moises Caicedo, after previously missing out on the Ecuador international.

What’s the word?

The Red Devils reportedly snubbed the chance to land the 21-year-old from former club Independiente del Valle back in January 2021 due to the negotiations becoming ‘too messy‘, only for the playmaker to go on to join the Seagulls in that same window for a fee of just £4.5m.

Having again been tipped for a move during the summer, recent reports have claimed that United are one of the clubs who are interested in making a move should the south coast side cash in, albeit with any deal set to cost in the region of £60m-£70m.

Journalist Simon Phillips – speaking to GIVEMESPORT – has now provided an update regarding the Old Trafford outfit’s interest, with the transfer insider suggesting that while the 28-cap gem is on Erik ten Hag’s radar, a January swoop appears unlikely.

The respected source stated: “Manchester United are also very keen on him as well, so there are other clubs there. I don’t think anything will be done again in January for Caicedo, I think it will be in the summer.”

Imagine him and Casemiro

The Premier League giants did ultimately strengthen in the recent window with the £70mcapture of serial-winner Casemiro from Real Madrid, with the experienced destroyer having gone on to thrive at the base of the midfield.

The 30-year-old has simply been a “monster” for Ten Hag’s side thus far – in the words of journalist Muhammad Butt – having averaged a remarkable haul of 3.2 tackles per game in the Premier League thus far from his 11 outings.
