“I Would Have Thought About It A Lot…” 100M Rated Midfielder Makes Frank Admission About Potential United Switch

Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo has admitted he would have thought long and hard about making a move to Manchester United this summer if they had made a formal approach.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the Red Devils did make an enquiry about the Ecuadorian international but stopped short of tabling an official bid. When asked whether he would have been open to a switch to Old Trafford, Caicedo replied:

“I saw rumours and things like that, but I was working on my team. I didn’t want anything to take me away from my work, I let my agent handle everything. I was very calm, focused only on Brighton and I didn’t know if there were other proposals or not. I was just working on my team to play good games. If there was any proposal, I would have thought about it a lot, but I am very happy here at Brighton and doing very well. I’m already adapted to the team.”


In the same interview, Caicedo also said that he would be keen on reuniting with his former manager Graham Potter at Chelsea, although he did, once again, emphasise that he is concentrating on playing for Brighton.

Ironically, Potter is the one who effectively priced him out of a transfer in the summer. When still at Brighton, he put a £100m valuation on the 20-year-old after being asked about the player in an interview.

Whether United are actually still interested in Caicedo, it is debatable. The Manchester club splashed out £70m on Casemiro which suggests they won’t be after another holding midfield player any time soon.
