We’re being linked. 19 year old central midfielder very much in the Bissouma mould. Equador international. Currently playing for C.S.D. Independiente del Valle which is same club we got Billy Arce from.

Manchester United are interested in signing 19-year-old Ecuador midfielder Moises Caicedo, but the deal is not as certain as is being made out in the player’s South American homeland. Some reports say an agreement has been reached for a fee of €4 million, plus bonuses, but the truth is that no such terms have been finalised and talks are yet to even take place with his Ecuadorian club, Independiente del Valle.
To complicate matters, Caicedo has multiple agents claiming to represent him, so United are having some trouble nailing down exactly who has the mandate to act on the teenager’s behalf, and there are competing factions attempting to promote him, hence a proliferation of stories surfacing.
Amid all this, United are also conscious of managing the costs that can arise when numerous intermediaries become involved and that means there is still quite a way to go before any possible solution is found.
First-hand reports have been filed by United staff in South America, and Caicedo’s profile fits with those of Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri as a global teenage prospect. Some sources say a bid is expected, with Antonio Valencia, United’s Ecuadorian former captain, asked his opinion. But Old Trafford sources urge caution.
Independiente del Valle’s general manager Santiago Morales has spoken publicly on the matter. “There’s interest from various teams for Moises Caicedo and we believe that we will not have him this year,” Morales told Radio La Red. “There is much speculation, but we are surprised that they even talk about values. We haven’t had any communication with Manchester United, although we have spoken with other great teams in the world.”

Seems unlikely that Bloom et al would want to get involved with all that again - bit like that geezer who went from Bocas to West Ham

West Ham signed Argentinian pair Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano for undisclosed fees from Brazilian side Corinthians.
And they both had some kind of third party ownership which created all sorts of problems.

Is that who you were thinking of?

Anyone can find out who he follows on Instagram. I've just checked, it's true, he follows us and not Everton or West Ham :shrug:

My apologies, you mean Moises Caicendo follows Brighton?

I thought you meant the Spanish speaking person that was tweeting the story.

THis one is filed under the 'Potentially Utter Tosh' section of my folder. Easily moved to 'Utter Tosh' although that is getting a lot bulkier now.

A young Bissouma........interesting.

Gets me thinking about the old one. We’re seeing the best of him now, it might be that a £40m+ offer is too tempting for our Tony in these troubled times, especially if a bidding war breaks out between Liverpool, Man Utd, Arsenal and Real.
