There is no secret or mistake in saying that Manchester United is in the race of signing a midfielder as a top target during this summer transfer market season, as their coach Erik Ten Hag is desperately looking forward to design an elite squad, able to fight to be champions in all the competitions next season.

After losing Adrien Rabiot, who finally will stay at Juventus, and not being able yet to sign Mason Mount as the Red Devils are not successful yet in reaching an agreement with Chelsea, Manchester United has plotted on another potential signing for their midfielder. The Red Devils are in the race to sign Brighton’s midfielder Moises Caicedo, who also is a Chelsea target, maybe as a revenge against Chelsea as a part of their non-agreement for Mount.

With Chelsea totally concerned about making cash to have fresh money with the sales of Kai Havertz, Mateo Kovacic, Edouard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly and Hakim Ziyech, a formal offer for Caicedo hasn’t been made yet, and Manchester United is proving its chance. According to by the Italian journalist specialized in transfers Fabrizio Romano, Brighton is asking for  £80 million million in exchange of Caicedo, more than the  £70 million paid for Casemiro, who arrived from Real Madrid to Old Trafford and has become one of the most loved players buy the United fans.

Would Caicedo arrive at United?

Talking about the race between Manchester United and Chelsea for the player, it is worth mentioning that during his time as an Independiente Del Valle player in 2020, Caicedo once declared that his dream was "to get to play for Manchester United, but not to come from one, but to be in Europe and gather more experience in other teams to arrive much more prepared", in dialogue with the program Futbol sin Cassette.
