Manchester United are interested in signing Moises Kaysed with representatives of the Brighton midfielder offering him to the Old Trafford club.
With Adrien Rabiot ruled out, United are now exploring alternative midfield options and Erik ten Hag is in desperate need of reinforcements in the center of the park.
United are considering an ambitious move Real Madrid star Casemiro of Caicedo also emerges as a possible option.
Guardian representatives of the Ecuadorian international team offered the 20-year-old United player. Caicedo joined Brighton just last year and after a short loan spell with Belgian side Bershott, finished the 2021-22 campaign well with the Seagulls.
After an impressive start to the new season, Brighton have no intention of selling the midfielder, according to reports Sky Sports. However, United are expected to make an offer.
United are long-term admirers of Caicedo and considered signing him last year before Brighton completed a deal with Ecuadorian side Independiente del Valle in February 2021.
Brighton have been able to secure huge fees for some of their brightest stars in the past 12 months, selling Ben White to Arsenal for £50m last year and Mark Cucurello joining Chelsea in a deal worth over £60 million pounds this summer.
United are running out of options as the club’s hopes of signing long-term target Frankie de Jong from Barcelona fade after months of fruitless negotiations.
Earlier this month, the club approached Adrien Rabiot, agreeing a fee of around £15m with Juventus.
However, the move has now been called off after United failed to agree personal terms with the 27-year-old following “indecent” demands from the player, his mother and agent Véronique Rabiot.
United have also failed in their attempts to strengthen their forward options. Benjamin Cesko was one of the targets under consideration, but the 21-year-old has agreed to join RB Leipzig next summer.
More recently, the club have expressed their interest in Atletico Madrid forward Mateusz Cunha – with some reports on Monday suggesting a £42million move was close to being agreed.
However, Cunha prefers to stay in Spain, with Atletico viewing the 23-year-old as an important player for the future. Alvaro Morata, Mauro Icardi and Jamie Vardy have also been linked with moves to Old Trafford.
