Ole Gunner Solskjaer is willing to place his bets on the future generation. Since Ole has come in he has promoted young players at the club. Manchester United is one of the clubs in the Premier League with the lowest average age of the squad.
After becoming manager Ole has made some good signings. But even in the recruitment policy, we can see that the club is eyeing young talented individuals who can be a part of the future of Manchester United.
Wan Bissaka, Facundo Pellestri, Dan James, Amad Diallo are all examples of the same. Ole is also promoting players from the youth team to come up and work for a place in the squad. Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams are 2 players who have made the breakthrough.
Amongst all this, the key focus is to mix experience with youth and talent to get productive results for the club and build a core for the long run. Now it looks like United have another such player on their radar.
Moises Caicedo is currently being scouted by the English outfit. Apparently Manchester United are not the only Premier League outfit showing interest in the 19-year-old. Chelsea, Brighton, and Newcastle are also monitoring his progress, according to a report published by the Daily Mail.
Caicedo players as a central and defensive midfielder. Manchester United will eventually have to find a replacement for Matic and Caicedo could be the answer to their problems.
Moises Caicedo on Manchester United’s radar
Moises Caicedo is one of the emerging prospects from the Ecuador team. The 19-year-old made his first senior team appearance in October 2020. He now has 4 caps and 1 goal for the Ecuador senior team.
Caicedo has the potential to develop into one of the greatest young talents in Europe. According to reports form reports CaughtOffside Manchester United are one of the key contenders in the race for Caicedo.
The January window is about to begin and all of the clubs would love to have a head start in their proceedings. United was previously linked with a move for Caicedo but there was no headway.
If the club opts to go for the player now he will cost them about $6 million which would certainly be a bargain. He can learn the tools of the trade under an experienced veteran like Matic.
The only decision he would have to make is to choose between a big club like Manchester United or getting regular first-team football with the like of Newcastle or Brighton.
Caicedo will not be able to break through the United squad right away which is why game time will be a factor in his decision-making. But considering the environment Ole has built at United, if you play well you definitely get a chance. If Manchester United presents a good offer it will be hard for Caicedo to resist.
