Man Utd 'target Brighton pair in sensational double transfer swoop' but face competition from Premier League rivals | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED are interested in signing Brighton duo Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo, according to reports.

Erik ten Hag is eager to add to his midfield ranks ahead of the 2023-24 campaign.

And according to The Telegraph, he believes that both Mac Allister and Caicedo would be a perfect fit for the Red Devils.

United have struggled this season when missing Casemiro and Christian Eriksen in midfield.

And with loan star Marcel Sabitzer set to return to Bayern Munich this summer, reinforcements will undoubtedly be required to build on the club's current form.

However, it will cost a lot to tempt the Brighton duo away from the Amex Stadium.

Caicedo, who was on the verge of joining Arsenal for around £70million in January, recently signed a new contract with the Seagulls.

His current deal expires in 2027, so United would likely have to pay upwards of £100m if they want to lure him to Old Trafford.

Mac Allister also comes with a hefty price tag.

Brighton have valued the World Cup winner at around £70m, but that amount will likely increase with the growing interest in him.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal are also keen on signing the Argentina international.

Mac Allister recently revealed that he would prefer to remain in the Premier League if he did decide to leave Brighton.

He told Gaston Edul of TyC Sports: “The truth is I don’t have a team in particular where I say they suit my way of playing.

“I think that here in the Premier League, there are very strong teams, teams who play very well, like Manchester City and Arsenal.

“Chelsea, I had (Graham) Potter and I know more or less the idea he has for playing football.

“Manchester United are returning a bit to what they were and Liverpool are having ups and downs but have still got a very important team and coach.

“If you ask me, I’d like my next step to be in the Premier League.”

Also on United's shortlist of midfield targets are West Ham's Declan Rice and Morocco ace Sofyan Amrabat.
