Revealed; Here is why Moises Caicedo did not join Chelsea or their Premier League rival in January.
Moises Caicedo did not finally arrive at Chelsea and although Chelsea showed a very good interest in him to come to the club but Brighton refused to sell and for a moment it was something no one could understand but now you can easily see why.
Caicedo had attempted to force a move away from the Amex Stadium, posting a message that expressed a desire to further his career at a bigger club, but then completed a sensational U-turn in early March by extending his contract.
The Ecuadorian did again express a desire to play in the Champions League, but is now committed to helping Brighton and their manager Roberto De Zerbi push for European qualification to continue what has been a superb season to date.
Interest in Caicedo is sure to resurface, either this summer or next, but Brighton CEO Barber has revealed to the The Beautiful Game Podcast the reasons behind the club’s denial of a move.
“For us in January selling Moises was not a good move,” Barber said. “He was one of our best players at the beginning of the season, and we were in a great position in the league, still in the FA Cup and there was a lot of football to play.
