The Premier League will start this weekend. Also, many soccer fans are anticipating the match between Liverpool and Chelsea. However, the biggest headline is Moises Caicedo’s potential record-breaking transfer.
According to sports betting news reports, many wonder which team will sign the midfielder. Teams that are pursuing Caicedo are Chelsea and Liverpool. However, nobody knows where he will be playing this season.
Liverpool has submitted a proposal of £111 million ($141 million) for the midfielder, although it is unclear if the Ecuadorian international will join the defending Premier League winner in 2019.
Caicedo’s Record-Breaking Transfer
According to bookie pay per head sources, the midfielder Caicedo has been linked to a move to Chelsea this summer, and despite a request for comment from a reporter, the player’s agent remained silent.
During a news conference on Friday, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp announced that a transfer fee for Caicedo had been agreed upon with Brighton. The BBC reported that the Brighton star’s transfer will be $141 million. Chelsea now holds the record after paying Benfica £107m ($135m) for Argentine player Enzo Fernandez earlier this year.
According to sports betting software experts, Liverpool had high expectations of landing the 21-year-old midfielder. However, according to Sky Sports, Caicedo prefers a transfer to Chelsea.
Caicedo, an Ecuadorian midfielder, has excelled since joining Brighton from Independiente del Valle for £4.5 million ($5.7 million). After seeing him play, many of England’s top teams have expressed interest in signing Caicedo.
Both Arsenal and Chelsea pursued the 21-year-old midfielder for quite some time. Arsenal allegedly made an offer for him during the January transfer window this year.
Caicedo posted an appeal for a transfer on Instagram during the January transfer window. However, Caicedo signed a new long-term contract with the south coast club in March. Many people warned him to stay away from the training facility until the window closed.
