Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

Manchester United have been interested in signing Moises Caicedo for a long time and the Ecuadorian is once again in the lime light.

Back in September, The People revealed that United are looking to hire the services of the South American and Brighton were thinking about agreeing a new deal with him.

More recently, The Sun have exclusively reported that the Seagulls will only allow their prized asset to leave if a fee of around £70million is met.

The British news source have mentioned that apart from Man Utd, the likes of Chelsea and Newcastle United are also in the race to lure the midfielder, who has been brilliant in the Premier League.

In the last campaign, Caicedo scored a goal in the 4-0 victory over the Red Devils.

On the other hand, this season, he put in a fantastic performance in the center of the park to help Brighton beat United in the opening PL contest.

At the World Cup, the 21-year-old was highly impressive in the midfield as Ecuador beat hosts, Qatar, in the opening game.

The youngster found the net in the last group game against Senegal but the African Champions won the contest 2-1 to knock La Tricolor out of the tournament.

Caicedo likes to press and break play consistently and connects the midfield with the attack. However, he is not someone who scores/creates goals on regular basis.

Last summer, Man Utd lured Casemiro and Eriksen, who have mainly played in the defensive midfield and the deep lying playmaker roles respectively.

Now, Erik ten Hag needs a creative midfielder to replace Paul Pogba in the center. In your view, should the Dutch manager splash £70million to sign Moises Caicedo?
