Moises Caicedo declares his desire to leave Brighton following an Arsenal £60 million offer.
Following an Arsenal bid of £60 million, Moises Caicedo publicly announced his desire to leave the team and accept a “magnificent opportunity.”
Insisting that Caicedo was not for sale, Brighton turned down a bid from the Premier League’s top team on Friday.
In the first week of this month, Chelsea showed interest in the 21-year-old, but their offer of £55 million experience a instant reject.
In the statement, Caicedo omitted to identify the club he aspires to join.
As follows: “For allowing me to visit the Premier League, Mr. Bloom and Brighton deserve my gratitude. I believe always gave them my very best. Always smile and play from the heart when I play football.
“I was raised in poverty as the youngest of 10 children in Santa Domingo, Ecuador. My lifelong goal has been to become Ecuador’s most decorated player.
“I’m pleased to have helped Brighton set a transfer fee record. which would enable them to invest it again and support the club’s ongoing success.
“I’ve won the hearts of my fans, and I’ll always have a place in my heart for them. They might be able to comprehend why I want to seize this fantastic opportunity.”
Soon after Manchester City defeated Arsenal in the FA Cup, Caicedo posted. City was able to win and advance to the fifth round thanks to a goal from Nathan Ake in the second half.
During his post-game press conference, Caicedo’s Instagram post led to questions for Mikel Arteta. “You know that before taking any action, I won’t comment on any players and I’ll continue like that, sorry,” he said.
The Spaniard responded, “We’ve been pretty active,” when asked if he planned to expand his team before the deadline for transfers on Tuesday.
“We have some necessities, but if something else is available, the club is willing to try to do it when it’s reasonable and hopefully. It’s a player who could help our team.
