Ex-Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia says he would be delighted if fellow countryman Moises Caicedo joined his former club.
The Ecuadorian international has been linked with a number of Premier League teams, with United, Chelsea and Liverpool having all been mentioned as potential destinations recently, and Valencia is hoping that the Brighton midfielder ends up at Old Trafford:
“Hopefully Moises Caicedo can go to a big team in England. He is a humble boy; he was born to be great and hopefully, he can come to Manchester United.”
Caicedo will undoubtedly be in high demand in future transfer windows if he maintains his current form, but he is unlikely to be available for a low price.
When he was still Brighton boss, Graham Potter laughed off reports that the Seagulls would sell Caicedo for £50m, stating that his club would only consider bids for double that amount.
Although it’s unlikely that Brighton would actually hold out for nine figures, they are very tough negotiators. You also have to take into account that United have just spent £70m on Casemiro, so they may not be open to splashing out on another midfielder anytime soon.
