Several South American outlets have been covering the story linking Ecuadorian youngster Moises Caicedo to Manchester United, and AS is one of them.
Their website is mostly taking what’s recently been said in the media, as the Red Devils reportedly contacted both the midfielder’s representatives and his club.
Now what’s really interesting in AS’s story today is that they found an interview which Independiente Del Valle general manager Santiago Morales gave to Ecuadorian outlet El Comercio.
The official not only confirmed that there are talks for Caicedo’s departure, but also claimed he doesn’t expect him to stay at the club.
“There is a lot of interest from European teams,” Morales told El Comercio (via AS).
“We’re in conversation with a team, surely we will not have him for 2021. For other players we haven’t had offers.”
AS also adds a good paragraph on Caicedo, in which they describe the features which make him one of the most promising talents in South America.
“At just 19 years old, Caicedo is a midfielder who stands out for his exquisite delivery of the ball in front of the defensive line as well as his anticipation when it comes to pressing in the midfield. His physical conditions favour him when attacking the rival box and he’s scored 4 goals in the league competition and two in the Copa Libertadores this season.”
Earlier today, we covered claims from Ecuador which said ‘everything indicates’ that Caicedo will end up moving to Manchester United.
Diario Extra claimed that the Red Devils are ‘well advanced’ in the race for the youngster, despite competition from the likes of RB Leipzig and AC Milan.
