‘My favorite club, clear message’: Player has now told his club to sell him to Chelsea this summer
Moises Caicedo has sent a clear message to Brighton, demanding that an agreement is reached with Chelsea for his transfer, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Initially, Caicedo was left out of a pre-season friendly due to a reported hamstring injury. However, Romano has revealed that the real reason for his absence is his desire to leave Brighton for Chelsea this summer. Talks between the parties are ongoing, but Brighton remains steadfast in their demand for £100 million for the midfielder’s transfer.
Chelsea has already reached an agreement with Caicedo on personal terms, so the main obstacle is now negotiating a fee with Brighton and completing medical examinations. The update indicates that Caicedo is taking a proactive stance to secure his move to Chelsea and is not content with Brighton’s resistance.
Given the player’s expressed desire to leave and the potential disruptions caused by an unhappy player, there’s a suggestion that Brighton should reconsider their stance and engage with Chelsea’s interest in Caicedo.
The situation is ongoing, and further developments are expected as the transfer window progresses.
