Manchester United are hoping to complete a deal for Ecuadorian teenager Moises Caicedo in the January transfer window, according to a report in Scotland.

The Daily Record, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Manchester United are looking to wrap up a deal for the 19-year-old next month following his impressive performances.

The same article states that Caicedo’s current club, Independiente del Valle, are looking to secure a transfer fee in the region of £5.5m with addd ons and 20 per cent sell-on clause.

According to the same story, Manchester United are facing competition from their Premier League rivals West Ham United for the Ecuadorian teenager’s signature.

The report goes on to add that Manchester United have been impressed with Caicedo’s performances in a box-to-box midfield role for Independiente del Valle.

The story continues by saying that Manchester United are looking to pursue highly-rated teenager talents to build a promising team of youngsters for the future.
