Manchester United turn their eye to Caicedo as De Jong deal fades

Manchester United are considering a move for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo, who has emerged, along with Casemiro, as a midfield alternative to Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong.

Negotiations for De Jong and Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot have broken down, leading the Red Devils to look to other options such as the 20-year-old Ecuadorian as the end of the transfer window approaches.

Caicedo caught Erik ten Hag’s eye in the shock victory that handed the Dutch newcomer defeat in his first Premier League match, but he has long been on Manchester United’s radar.
