THE BIGGER PICTURE: Manchester United have faced problems due to a lack of quality options in their midfield this season. In absence of Christian Eriksen, who is ruled out of action due to injury and Casemiro's suspension in the last four matches, Erik ten Hag was forced to play Bruno Fernandes as a deep-lying midfielder.

AND WHAT'S MORE: The Dutch coach wanted to sign Frenkie de Jong last summer but he decided to stay at Barcelona and has now become a mainstay in their starting lineup.

Caicedo was wanted by Arsenal in the January window but Brighton did not sanction the move at that time. With Arsenal now shifting their focus towards Declan Rice, it could be easier for Manchester United to get the deal done. Caicedo has a contract with his club until 2027 while Mac Allister signed a new deal until 2025.
