Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo has expressed his desire to play for Real Madrid, labeling them the “best team in the world” and his dream club.
The 21-year-old Ecuadorian has attracted interest from a host of top clubs due to his unique skill set, fine passing, and box-to-box profile.
Caicedo’s contract with Brighton runs until June of 2027, so any potential transfer to Real Madrid is likely to involve a hefty fee.
In an interview with Carrusel Deportivo, Caicedo spoke about his admiration for Real Madrid’s style of play and players like Vinicius, Camavinga, Valverde, and Kroos. He also expressed his desire to win the Champions League with the Spanish giants.
Caicedo has played 28 games for Brighton in this season’s Premier League, scoring one goal and providing one assist.
He averages 1.2 key passes per game and has created three big chances. Defensively, he impresses with an average of 1.5 interceptions, 3.2 tackles, 0.6 clearances, and over six duels won per game.
Moises Caicedo dreams of Real Madrid move
His numbers, coupled with his young age, make him a highly desirable prospect for Europe’s elite.
While Real Madrid is said to be interested in Caicedo, their priority at the moment is Jude Bellingham. The Spanish giants are in a two-horse race with Manchester City for the English midfielder, and Borussia Dortmund’s economic demands have risen astronomically as a result.
Real Madrid has also reportedly agreed on renewals with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric for next season, leaving the possibility of Caicedo’s transfer to the next season.
