While Manchester United keeps working towards closing the signing of Adrien Rabiot, who is just a signature away from joining the Red Devils, they are also starting to look for new alternatives in case Frenkie De Jong ends up not signing with United and decides to stay at FC Barcelona after they wanted to kick him out.

Today it was reported by Tom Hopkinson from Sunday Mirror and Sunday Mirror, that Manchester United is among a number of clubs weighing up a move for Brighton’s Moises Caicedo this summer. We’ll see if the club makes a move this week for the young player who is having a great start to the season.

The 20-year-old midfielder had an amazing match last week at Old Trafford in his team’s victory over United. He won 5 out of 6 individual duels, made 3 key passes, and participated in both of the goals Brighton scored last Sunday. Yesterday, he was named Man Of The Match against Newcastle. This may have been enough to make Erik ten Hag and the board invested in him.

Ever since the young Ecuatorian made his debut with Graham Potter's team, his team has obtained 20 points out of 30 possible, beating Arsenal, Tottenham, Wolves, West Ham and Manchester United twice. The only team that has beaten them when he was on the field is the current Premier League champions Manchester City.

The 19-times Premier League winners were really close to signing Caicedo in January of last year, but they didn’t pull the trigger in order to bring him to the Theatre of Dreams. Brighton ended up signing him from Independiente for around £5 million. After Bissouma left the Seagulls, he has taken over his team’s midfield and his value has surely skyrocketed.
