Independiente del Valle midfielder Moises Caicedo has weighed-in first hand on the increasing speculation that he could be set for a transfer to Manchester United.

Caicedo, 19, who currently plays for Independiente del Valle in Ecuador’s top-flight has quickly emerged as one of South America’s brightest talents.

The commanding midfielder has so far featured in 31 senior first-team matches for Independiente del Valle and has been directly involved in an impressive eight goals, in all competitions.

Internationally, the teenager already has four senior caps under his belt, all of which came during his country’s recent World Cup Qualifiers.

In light of the youngster’s impressive form, Caicedo been heavily linked with a winter move to team up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United, as per MEN.

Despite the heavy links, a move during this month’s window has so far failed to be finalised.

However, the latest in the ongoing saga comes directly from the player himself.

Speaking to Futbol Sin Cassette (as quoted by Sports Witness), Caicedo, when asked about the links to United said: “My dream is to get to Manchester United, but first I want to reach other teams in Europe to adapt and get to Manchester in a better way.”

Sports Witness speculate that although not confirmed, there is a genuine possibility that should United manage to sign the 19-year-old that they could opt to initially loan him out.
