For the past couple of weeks, the Moises Caicedo saga got so quiet that even looked like the player could be going nowhere.
But there’s finally some updates on the situation now, as Independiente Del Valle official Santiago Morales gave a clarifying interview to Área 88.
The director confirmed that the paperwork is now ready, and Moises Caicedo is ready to travel to sign for Brighton & Hove Albion.
“I’m going to give you a scoop: yesterday we received Moises Caicedo’ visa so that he can travel to England. He has tickets to travel tomorrow, he will undergo medical checks to join Brighton”, Morales told Área 88.
“We have transferred 80% of the rights of Moisés Caicedo, we reserve 20% of a future sale. The values are those that have been discussed.”
“I understand that Brighton have no places for foreigners for the remainder of the tournament. We don’t know if they will loan him to Belgium, but if it happens it’ll be something very timely because Brighton made a great investment for him.”
The Moises Caicedo saga started last year, when Manchester United got linked to the player and local reports even said there was an agreement with the Red Devils.
Then the likes of Brighton, Chelsea and Newcastle United ended up being named as potential contenders as well. And in the end, it seems the Seagulls have really won the race.
There’s still no information on how much are the club spending on the transfer, although that’s something that should be revealed by the Ecuadorian media pretty soon.
