More information According to reports, Manchester United’s pursuit of Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo may be aided by his family’s footballing allegiances. After missing out on the signings of Frenkie de Jong and Adrien Rabiot, the Red Devils are said to be keen on bringing Caicedo to Old Trafford before next month’s all-important transfer deadline. Those in charge at Old Trafford are still thought to have plenty of other plans, with Fabrizio Romano claiming that Caicedo has emerged as one of several alternative targets. According to Jonathan Shrager, the 20-year-old comes from a family of United supporters and would be interested in joining the club as a result. Those close to Caicedo believe he is more physically suited to Premier League football now than when he was first linked with the Red Devils almost two years ago. United, on the other hand, has yet to make a formal approach and is weighing the possibility of launching a concrete offer in the coming days. Meanwhile, Brighton’s reluctance to sell Caicedo may throw a wrench in the works, with the Seagulls reportedly unwilling to sell their prized asset under any circumstances. The Colombian playmaker has emerged as a key player for Graham Potter’s side recently, and he was arguably the best player on the pitch during their impressive opening-day win over Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier this month.

It remains to be seen whether the Red Devils will pursue the player in the near future, or if Erik ten Hag will look elsewhere in his search for a new first-choice option in the middle of the park. The club’s current midfield pairing of Fred and Scott McTominay has come under fire recently, with the holding midfield area being a consistent problem for the Red Devils over the last few years. Roy Keane slammed the duo after they were defeated by Brighton on the first day of the season, claiming that they are not good enough to help United achieve their goal of competing for a return to the Premier League’s top four. DON’T FORGET The Red Devils are rumored to be looking for a new first-choice central midfielder ( EXPRESS) “The [lack of] decision-making and football intelligence from midfield, particularly Fred,” raged Keane as a Sky Sports pundit. “I’ve been saying for a long time that Fred and McTominay aren’t good enough. They will not return Manchester United to the top of the Premier League. We see it on a weekly basis. They are not prepared.” Want the most recent Premier League news as it breaks on Express Sport?
