CAICEDO SIGNING ‘LOCKED IN’
Manchester United have “locked in” the transfer of Moises Caicedo, claims South American football expert Tim Vickery.
The teenager, who has caught the eye at Independiente del Valle in Ecuador, has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.
“It looks like he is locked in for Manchester United and if it goes through, they have got themselves the real deal Holyfield!” Vickery told Sky Sports.
“Only 19. The way the market is going with South American football is the European clubs want to take them as early as possible. They are buying on promise.
“The fella Moises Caicedo is much more than promise, he is reality. He is the first player born in the 21st century to score a goal in South American World Cup qualifiers.
“We have just lost Colin Bell and I am not saying he is as good as Bell but Moises Caicedo is in that kind of mould. He is a terrific athlete who makes football look easy. A box-to-box midfielder.
“That kind of box-to-box midfielder that’s very much in the tradition of the England game. Strong, quick, intelligent and cool. He really does look like the genuine article.”
