What’s next after this ad

This is a soap opera from which we did not expect such a twist. Courted since the start of the transfer window by the big arms of the Premier League, Chelsea and especially Arsenal, Moises Caicedo had been discreet until then. At 21, the midfielder has been a safe bet since he arrived at the club. It was a year ago. After a few weeks of adaptation, he got up to speed, even becoming one of the executives of this collective, under the orders of Graham Potter, then Roberto De Zerbi for a few weeks.

The Seagulls were asking €85m to let go of their player. An enormous sum supposed to frighten the courtiers. Blues and Gunners still tried the deal, offering €55m and €60m respectively. Both of these proposals were refused. But in the head of Caicedo, the idea of ​​a departure for the upper floor germinated. After a first reassuring statement at the start of the week about his intentions to stay in Brighton, the Ecuadorian this time asked on social networks to be let go. A press release published yesterday evening quite explicit for a frankly surprising method.

Caicedo asked to leave on social media

“I am grateful to Mr Bloom and Brighton for giving me the chance to come to the Premier League and I feel like I have always done my best for them. I always play football with a smile and with my heart. I am the youngest of 10 siblings from a poor education in Santa Domingo, Ecuador. My dream has always been to be the most decorated player in Ecuador’s history. I am proud to be able to bring a record transfer fee to Brighton which will allow them to reinvest it and help the club continue their success story. The fans have taken me to their hearts and they will always be in my heart, so I hope they can understand why I want to take this wonderful opportunity.”

This is called forcing his departure. At the club, we are surprised by this message posted on social networks. We recognize that he is undoubtedly affected by all these rumors but we are counting on him for the second part of the season. ” He’s a good guy. He is solely focused on Brighton. I understand that he has the chance to go to a very big team but I hope he can stay with us until the end of the season. I think it’s the best solution for him and for us, ”confided Roberto De Zerbi earlier in the day at a press conference. It was before this media blow.

Brighton have no need to sell

The standoff is now launched and promises to be very disputed 4 days before the closing of the transfer window. The equation is quite simple on paper but very difficult to solve in the end. Caicedo wants to leave, has courtiers who seem ready to pay a high price but Brighton prefer to keep him. Better still, the 6th in the Premier League, who is having a very good season, is in a strong position because after having sold Ben Withe for 58 M€ to Arsenal last year, Marc Cucurella against 65 M€ to Chelsea and Yves Bissousma in Tottenham for 30 M€ last summer, in addition to Leandro Trossard in exchange for 30 M€ this winter at the Gunners, a new big sale is not at all essential. And then the Ecuadorian is still under contract until 2025, an advantage for Brighton.
