Man Utd have the upper hand in their pursuit of Moises Caicedo, even with the player’s preference to join Arsenal – Mirror Online.

Man Utd have the upper hand in their pursuit of Moises Caicedo, despite the player’s preference to join Arsenal. According to reports, the Red Devils are willing to pay a higher transfer fee than Arsenal for the Ecuadorian midfielder.

The 19-year-old has been linked with a move away from his current club Independiente del Valle since last year and has been on the radar of several top European clubs.

Caicedo is highly rated in South America and has already made his debut for Ecuador’s senior national team. He is seen as a long-term replacement for Paul Pogba, who has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

Man Utd have reportedly offered Independiente del Valle £5 million for the player, while Arsenal are believed to have offered £4 million.

It remains to be seen if the two clubs can agree on a fee for Caicedo, but Man Utd appear to have the upper hand in the race for his signature.

Man Utd have been linked with a number of other midfielders, including Donny van de Beek and Jude Bellingham. However, it appears that Caicedo is their top target.

It remains to be seen if Man Utd can convince Caicedo to join them, but they appear to have the upper hand in the race for his signature.

Man Utd have been in the market for a midfielder since last summer and Caicedo could be the perfect addition to their squad. He is a versatile player who can play in both defensive and attacking roles, making him an ideal fit for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s system.

The Red Devils are also reportedly willing to offer Caicedo a long-term contract, which could prove to be a decisive factor in his decision.

Arsenal are trying to secure the services of Moises Caicedo – with the starlet having admitted his “dream” is to join Manchester United.

The Gunners are planning to improve the depth of their squad this season as they strive for their first Premier League title since 2004. Reports indicate that a move for Brighton’s star player is in the works, as both teams have shown interest in making the transfer.

One year prior, Caicedo voiced his ambition to emulate fellow Ecuadorian Antonio Valencia and join Manchester United, the latter having already been recruited by the famed Sir Alex Ferguson at the time.

A year ago he informed The Athletic: “My fantasy is to take the field for Manchester United. Antonio Valencia is an inspiration. With his might and commitment, he could reach that elevation. That encourages me to keep striving and perform the right things.”

Even though Caicedo is a big fan of the Red Devils, they are unlikely to make any moves in the transfer window as they already invested in Casemiro before the summer. They had been targeting Frenkie de Jong for a few months but ended up bringing in the former Real Madrid midfielder alongside Christian Eriksen, Fred and Scott McTominay.

Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey have been relied on by Arsenal to dominate in midfield, yet the lack of depth behind them is a major concern. Caicedo has made it clear that he wants to move forward with what he perceives as a “magnificent opportunity”.

”He thanked Mr [Tony] Bloom and Brighton for providing him an opportunity to move to the Premier League, expressing his sincere appreciation for his time with them and his desire to take up this grand opportunity.

Caicedo commented on his record transfer fee to Brighton: “I’m really proud that I’ve been able to bring this in for the club, and it will help them keep going with their success. I always play football happily and with devotion; having grown up as the youngest of ten siblings and living in poverty, my goal has always been to become the most decorated player ever from Ecuador.”

Brighton have instructed Caicedo to break off from the team until Tuesday’s closure of the January transfer window, making him miss their FA Cup game versus Liverpool. The decision of Brighton’s executives is that having his presence around the camp might be a diversion.

  1. Despite Caicedo’s fondness for the Red Devils, they are unlikely to act given their investment in Casemiro in the summer. They had chased Frenkie de Jong for several months but eventually bought in the former Real Madrid man to complement the likes of Christian Eriksen, Fred and Scott McTominay.

    Arsenal meanwhile have largely relied on Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey to dominate their midfield. There is a lack of depth behind them, which is a concern. Caicedo has gone public with his desire to leave, underlining his want to realise a “magnificent opportunity”.
