Caicedo’s talents have garnered confirmed interest from Manchester United. This indicates their pursuit of the midfielder. Meanwhile, Arsenal and Chelsea, have been closely monitoring the situation surrounding Caicedo.

Manchester City has also identified Caicedo as a potential alternative to Jude Bellingham. In case the Borussia Dortmund star decides to join Real Madrid. The club has shown interest in Caicedo as a contingency plan for their midfield reinforcement.

Liverpool withdrew from the race to sign Bellingham primarily because of his hefty price tag.Which was reported to be in the range of £115-135 million. The club was reluctant to allocate such a significant portion of their budget to a single player. As it would limit their ability to strengthen other positions in the team, notably the center-back position.
