Reported Man United target Moises Caicedo admits it’s his ‘dream’ to join Reds

Manchester United may have just been given a lift in their pursuit of Moises Caicedo.

If you believe stories we’ve covered, the Old Trafford club are closing in on a move for the young Ecuadorian, Moises Caicedo.

The talented 19-year-old is widely toted as being the next big thing to come out of Ecuador, with the young man starting to make a real name for himself while playing for Independiente del Valle.

A midfielder by trade, Caicedo has seemingly pured cold water on the rumours suggesting that a deal to Manchester United is all-but complete.

In fact, he’s actually stated that United may well not even be his next career move, instead, he’ll maybe move to another European outfit and get to United in a ‘better way’.

The reported United transfer target did admit it is his ‘dream’ to join the Red Devils at some point in his career, mind…

Check out what Moises Caicedo had to say here:

“My dream is to get to Manchester United, but first I want to reach other teams in Europe to adapt and get to Manchester in a better way,” he told Futbol Sin Cassette, translated by Sport Witness.

What I will say is that I like Caicedo’s attitude. These comments seem pretty grounded for a young man whose rapid rise to fame could’ve naturally taken him down an arrogant path.

Caicedo isn’t getting ahead of himself, knowing that he may well have to learn his trade elsewhere, before eventually being good enough to make the move to Old Trafford.

Personally, I wouldn’t rule a United move for Caicedo out. Obviously, there’s some sort of interest in him from a Reds standpoint or this rumour wouldn’t exist. Plus, United have displayed a recent tendency of hoovering up some of the best talent in world football. See Hannibal Mejbri, Alvaro Fernandez and Facundo Pellistri for further proof of that.
