Premier League star details what his future could look like as Liverpool, Man Utd plot moves

Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo tackles Newcastle winger Allan Saint-Maximin

Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo, who has become a target for the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United in recent months, has made a hint about a transfer he could secure in the future.

Caicedo has admitted to being a fan of Manchester United in the past. And the Red Devils had the chance to sign him while he was still playing in his native Ecuador with Independiente.

However, Manchester United passed up on the opportunity and this saw Brighton secure his services. According to Sky Sports, they paid £4.5million to bring Caicedo to England.

He spent the first half of last season on loan at Belgian club Beerschot. Brighton brought him back to the Amex in January and he has made a big impression in the Premier League since then.

Coincidentally, Caicedo’s first Brighton goal came against United in May. He got on the scoresheet in a shock 4-0 win for the Seagulls, who were then managed by Graham Potter.

Caicedo has continued to impress this term. He was one of Brighton’s best players as they once again beat United on the opening day of the new campaign.

The Ecuadorian also scored in Brighton’s last match before the international break, which ended in a 5-2 thrashing of Leicester.

Caidedo’s top displays have put some of England’s biggest clubs on his trail. Liverpool, United and Chelsea are all thought to be keen on signing him.

The Brighton man is currently on international duty. He played a full 90 minutes in both of Ecuador’s goalless draws with Saudi Arabia and Japan.

Moises Caicedo predicts future move

Caicedo recently spoke to Argentine outlet Ole about his career so far and how much of it he owes to his first professional club, Independiente.

The 20-year-old suggested he could go back to Independiente once his time in Europe is done, to help young players come through their academy before potentially following a similar path to him.

“They [Independiente’s coaches] were the ones who helped me take the next step, which was England. If I hadn’t come to a club like that, I wouldn’t be here,” Caicedo said (via Sport Witness).

“To reach big teams you need more than all discipline and hard work in every training session. They helped me, since I arrived, to make an effort and give my 200 percent.

“Sometimes I had things as a child, like not wanting to train, but they helped me get rid of those bad habits and I was able to make my way through the Primera de Independiente, thanks to my dedication and effort.

Club ‘will always be my home’, says Caicedo

“Thanks to the fact that they were behind me supporting me and removing my bad habits, making me strive daily and not lose, mainly, my humility.

“Independiente will be my home, always. In the future, when I succeed in Europe, I would love to go back there and help many kids so that they have a different mentality and can do things well here in Europe.”

Caicedo also spoke about the training sessions at Brighton and how they are similar to Independiente’s.

“Sometimes I am training at Brighton and I think I am there, because the training is very similar – intense, short game and others. Every time I train here, it reminds me of Independiente,” he added.

It is nice that Caicedo wants to go back to Ecuador and help the young players there. Having said that, he probably won’t be able to do it for a while.

Caicedo has pretty much his whole career ahead of him. And a big Prem transfer appears to be beckoning in 2023.

Liverpool, United and Chelsea are all preparing to battle it out for his signature as they eye midfield reinforcements. However, one pundit thinks a January swoop for him should be avoided.
