Moises Caicedo’s desire to leave Brighton and Hove Albion is well known. He was very close to signing a deal with Arsenal in January and even wrote a letter to his team’s administrators iterating his wish to leave.

The Ecuadorian has a long list of clubs interested in signing him. Given his unique skillset, fine passing, and box-to-box profile, the buzz is not surprising.

Earlier this week, the midfielder gave an interview with Carrusel Deportivo in which he spoke about his dream club. His answer will please those at the administration in Real Madrid.

“I would like to play for Real Madrid one day. It has always been my dream,” the Brighton midfielder said.

“Real Madrid is the best team in the world and I want to win the Champions League with them. It’s very nice to see how Madrid plays and the personality of players like Vinicius, Camavinga, Valverde… I also really enjoy watching Kroos,” he added.

The 21-year-old has played 28 games for Brighton so far in this season’s Premier League, scoring one goal and providing one assist in the process. He averages 1.2 key passes per game and has created three big chances in the process.

Defensively, his numbers are impressive. The youngster averages 1.5 interceptions, 3.2 tackles, 0.6 clearances, and over six duels won per game. His numbers coupled with his age translate to a highly desirable profile for Europe’s elite.

Caicedo’s contract with the Premier League side runs until June of 2027, and it is safe to assume that a transfer would involve a hefty fee. With Real Madrid looking for a few new faces in midfield, it remains to be seen if his recent statement stirs the offices.

At the moment, Los Blancos’ priority is Jude Bellingham. They find themselves locked in a two-horse race with Manchester City, and the result of the tussle has been an astronomical rise in Borussia Dortmund’s economic demands.

Real Madrid are said to have agreed on renewals with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric for next season. Thus, postponing the impending reinforcement to the next season is now a real option.

Real Madrid have officially announced that winger Marco Asensio will be leaving the club as a free agent at the end of the season. The Spaniard was between a contract extension and departure for a very long time, and eventually decided it was best for him to leave.

Asensio joined Madrid eight years ago, as a 20-year-old, and was loaned out to Espanyol during his first season in the top flight, where he scored four goals and gave ten assists across 34 appearances.

He has since been a key member of Real Madrid’s team, often dropping in and out of starting lineups, though. During his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, Asensio has won three UEFA Champions Leagues, four FIFA Club World Cups, three La Ligas, and three European Super Cups.

“Real Madrid fans will never forget their path and their exemplary behaviors during all this time. Madrid is, and will always be, his home,” the farewell announcement said.

Now, rumours suggest that Asensio will heading to Paris to join PSG on a Bosman move.
