JF SPORT Moises Caicedo

The transfer window is set to be an exciting one for Premier League fans, with two of the biggest clubs in the country, Manchester United and Chelsea, reportedly set to make a move for Moises Caicedo. The 19-year-old Ecuadorian midfielder has been making waves in South America, and is now being linked with a move to the Premier League.

Caicedo currently plays for Ecuadorian side Independiente del Valle, and has been a regular in their starting line-up since making his debut in 2018. He has made a total of 57 appearances for the club, scoring four goals and providing four assists. He has also been capped four times by Ecuador, and is widely regarded as one of the most promising young players in South America.

The midfielder has been linked with a move to Europe for some time, and it appears that Manchester United and Chelsea are now ready to make their move. Both clubs are reportedly keen to add the 19-year-old to their squads, and are expected to make a bid for him this summer.

The news comes despite the fact that Caicedo recently signed a new contract with Independiente del Valle, which runs until 2024. However, it is believed that the Ecuadorian club are open to selling the player, and are likely to accept a bid in the region of £10 million.

Manchester United and Chelsea are both in need of reinforcements in midfield, and Caicedo could be the perfect addition to their squads. He is a dynamic and creative player, who is capable of playing in a variety of positions. He is also a hard-working player, who is willing to put in the effort to help his team.

It remains to be seen whether either club will be able to secure the services of the 19-year-old, but it is clear that both Manchester United and Chelsea are keen to add him to their squads. With the transfer window set to open in the coming weeks, it will be interesting to see if either club can make a move for the Ecuadorian midfielder.
