Manager admits £70m Manchester United target may be set to play final game for club

Manchester United are long-term admirers of Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo, who is expected to leave the club this summer.

Brighton's star creating factory is the envious eye of clubs across the Premier League and they face a battle to keep hold of their players this summer.

Much to Manchester United's frustration, they are determined to keep hold of young striker Evan Ferguson, Sky Sports report.

Moises Caicedo is another matter entirely. Brighton are fully prepared for the Ecuador international to leave the club this summer.

De Zerbi told BBC Sport he is prepared for the eventuality. He said: "It can be the last game but I don't know. They can have the possibility to change [clubs] because they deserve to play in another level."

He said the final decision will rest with owner Tony Bloom, who told Sky Sports earlier this month that Brighton have ready-made list of replacements for their top stars should they move on.

Sky Sports has reported Moises Caicedo is on Manchester United's wishlist, and the midfielder 'liked' a picture of countryman Antonio Valencia signing a Red Devils shirt just this past week.

United are in the market for a midfielder, however, it remains to be seen whether the budget extends to Brighton's PS70 million asking price, with a striker high on the priority list.

The Guardian has reported interest from both Arsenal and Chelsea in Caicedo, with the Gunners attempting to sign him on deadline day in January.

Manchester United had the chance to sign Caicedo in 2021 for just PS4.5 million and were unwilling to push the deal through, inaction which is proving to be a very costly error, especially if he now goes on to sign for another top Premier League club.
