Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo (21) is flowing in an atmosphere where he will not join Liverpool. The transfer seemed to be finalized as the transfer fee negotiations between the clubs were over, but it is reported that the player himself wants to wear a Chelsea uniform.
Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European football transfer market, exclusively reported the news on the 11th (Korean time) via social network service (SNS), saying, “Caicedo has just informed Liverpool that he wants to join Chelsea.” It is truly a shocking ‘reversal’.
Even a day ago, Caicedo seemed to be entering Anfield. In fact, Liverpool proposed 110 million pounds (approximately 185.5 billion) and reached an agreement with Brighton, and he only had to sign the contract after undergoing a medical test and making a final personal agreement.
In particular, the transfer was so strong that even prospects that if he wore a Liverpool uniform, he would break the record for the highest transfer fee in the English Premier League (EPL) ever came out one after another. The best until the end is Enzo Fernandes (22), who recorded £ 107 million (approximately 180.8 billion won) when he joined Chelsea from Benfica in January.
Caicedo, however, did not betray Chelsea, who had signed an early personal agreement at the end of May. He refuses to go to Liverpool in the hopes of keeping his promise, now hoping to enter Stamford Bridge. As a result, all transfer negotiations returned to square one ‘one day’.
Reporter Romano added, “To keep his promise, Caicedo decided to only accept Chelsea, where personal terms were agreed at the end of May.” He is currently having second thoughts about a move to Liverpool and is said to be still in London with his agent.
Caicedo is an Ecuadorian midfielder who came to the EPL stage when he joined Brighton in 2021. Based on his vigorous activity and excellent mobility, he actively participates in midfield fights, has excellent defensive abilities, and even has technical skills such as ball control and passing power.먹튀검증
He rose to the ranks of EPL’s representative holding midfielder with outstanding performance last season, and received ‘love calls’ from big clubs this summer. And while he is currently pursuing a transfer, he is contemplating his next destination with Liverpool and Chelsea.
