Manchester United are reportedly facing competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea for Ecuador teenager Moises Caicedo.

Manchester United are reportedly facing competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea for Ecuador teenager Moises Caicedo.

The 19-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks after bursting onto the scene with Independiente del Valle.

Ecuadorian news outlet El Telegrafo reports that Chelsea as well as Dutch giants Ajax have registered their interest in the midfielder, who is valued at around £4m.

Independiente del Valle general manager Santiago Morales has admitted that Caicedo is likely to leave the club this year.

"There is interest from various teams for Moises Caicedo and we believe that we will not have him this year," Morales told Radio La Red.

In a separate interview with Machdeportes, Morales also added that they "have two strong teams from Europe" interested in the teenager and that "there is another club interested in England" along with Manchester United.

Caicedo came through the ranks with Independiente del Valle and made his senior debut in October 2019, before receiving his first national team cap a year later.
