After having seen rejected their third bid for the 24 year-old Chelsea player Mason Mount, Manchester United seems to have become fed up with being messed around by Chelsea, and they are reported to have turned their attention to new players as Ten Hag is resigned  to spend his budget for transfers as smartly as possible during the summer transfer window.

Therefore, given that Chelsea rejected a £55m bid earlier this week and it's said they would accept a payment structure of a £58m down payment with £7m in add-ons, Manchester United and Ten Hag have move away from Mount, considering another target who could improve the Red Devils midfield, the Ecuatorian Moises Caicedo.

According to the Sunday Times football correspondent Jonathan Northcroft, this is the reason why Manchester United are focusing on other midfield targets, with Moises Caicedo top of their list, after reaching an impasse in their attempts to sign Mason Mount, and having Arsenal given up on the pursuit of the Brighton midfielder to focus on Declan Rice.

Following the information in Sunday Times, the Mancunian institution knows that Caicedo will cost more money than Mount but they would be interested in completing the signing as they find contract terms and age differences as more favorable conditions for the club comparing the issues given in the Mount’s negotiation.

Is Manchester United making the right choice?

Desperated to sign their firs transfer of the season, United fans have shown on the Social Media a great expectation for the Caicedo signing, so his name has already been linked with other teams like Liverpool, Chelsea or Arsenal. At this time Red Devils are dreaming about another succesfull career of an Ecuatorian at Old Trafford, remembering the days of Antonio Valencia with Manchester United, while Mason Mount is in trouble with the Chelsea fans after publicly admitting his interest on leaving the club.
