Manchester United have reportedly completed their latest transfer in Moises Caicedo.
Although nothing is breaking in the UK press about the transfer, members of the foreign press have been kept busy trying to find out who the Red Devils are tracking ahead of the January transfer window.
It seems United have interest in yet another player for the future, like when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer signed both Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo during the summer.
Diallo still has to link up with his new team-mates for the first time and we’re expecting him to be part of the squad from January onwards.
Moisés Caicedo will be a #mufc player. Caicedo’s agents, United and Independiente del Valle representatives have reached an agreement. He will have to sign before the new Premier League contract rules are applied #mulive [@futbolbohemio]

According to FutbolBohemio, it’s looking like Caicedo’s agents met with Manchester United and he will sign a contract to join the club.
It was reported earlier this week by the Manchester Evening News that United have identified the talented midfielder as a transfer target.
@acmilan y @rbleipzig también estarían interesados en Moi Caicedo. Se unen a @Alaves, @WestHam y @AFCAjax como clubes interesados. Sin embargo, el único club que va a tener una reunión con el entorno de La Joya es @ManUtd_Es

It has been reported that RB Leipzig, AC Milan, Ajax, Alaves and West Ham are also interested in Independiente’s commanding midfielder.
Solskjaer is doing a cracking job reinvigorating the academy while in charge of the first time, and a defensive midfielder is something he should be scouting for the first time. Signing a young defensive midfielder could be the best of both worlds.
The Ecuadorian may be about to make the biggest move of his football career. I’m sure Antonio Valencia will have plenty of advice for the youngster.
