Man Utd and Chelsea 'expected to make Moises Caicedo transfer bid this summer' despite signing new Brighton deal | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED and Chelsea are both set to make a bid for Brighton star Moises Caicedo despite him signing a new contract at the club, according to reports.
The midfielder has just put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep him at the Amex Stadium until 2027.
But The Telegraph report that the transfer saga is not over, with both United and Chelsea willing to try their luck in the summer.
This comes after Arsenal pushed hard to sign him in January, seeing multiple bids including one worth £70million being rejected.
The Gunners instead signed Jorginho from Chelsea.
They are supposedly not planning to reignite their interest in Caicedo, with West Ham captain Declan Rice their top target.

That position could change if their pursuit of him is unsuccessful with the Hammers demanding over £100million.
Caicedo was previously keen to leave Brighton and he took to social media to plead that the club let him depart.
Since then, he has appeared to delete his Instagram and change his agent.
Whether Brighton would be willing to sell so soon after the player pledged his future is unknown.
