Moises Caicedo to Chelsea transfer as £75m fee agreed with deal at ‘final stage’

Manchester United appear ready to compete with Chelsea in their efforts to sign Moises Caicedo this summer. The 21-year-old midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge recently, but Manchester United could potentially disrupt the transfer.

According to information from football.london, Arsenal attempted to sign Caicedo in January, making two offers that were quickly turned down. Despite expressing a desire to leave, Caicedo later signed a contract extension a few months later, committing himself to the Amex Stadium until 2027.

Initially, it seemed that his new contract would prevent a transfer in the near future. However, it now appears that Chelsea is expected to make a move for Caicedo in the coming days. football.london reports that the Blues have an interest in the Ecuadorian international and are aware that his price tag could be around £80 million.

While Arsenal is focused on finalizing a deal for Declan Rice, Chelsea seems to be in a strong position to secure Caicedo’s signature.
