Melissa Reddy tells Chelsea ‘to get a rush on’ as Liverpool left in ‘fascinating’ Caicedo position

Posted by

Liverpool placed a bid, Brighton accepted but we still wait for more news as it appears that Moises Caicedo wants to move to Chelsea but it seems that time may be running out for the Londoners.

Taking to social media, Melissa Reddy provided an in-depth update on the situation: ‘Until Chelsea make a formal British record offer that Brighton accept for Moises Caicedo, not much has significantly changed. As one source put it “more tweets about what they’ll do than what they actually have.” CFC have known what Liverpool’s bid & structure is since Thursday.

‘Strong suggestions Chelsea hoped Liverpool would withdraw their bid and walk away on Friday allowing them to negotiate a more favourable fee and structure with Brighton, which didn’t happen. Next developments very interesting in light of FFP/Premier League P&S rules

‘Chelsea have always been favourites for Caicedo. Long before the auction, during it, after it. And the preferred destination (despite LFC having assurances + encouragement from his reps). CFC don’t have the agreement with Brighton, which is critical – they need to get a rush on.

‘Overriding sense that Chelsea will do what is necessary to get Caicedo, who has been their priority target. How Liverpool would progress in that instance, given the Romeo Lavia situation and with time running out, will be fascinating’.

It seems clear that the Seagulls will not offer an indefinite time limit on waiting for this proposed £115 million bid from Todd Boehly and so they will soon be asked to make their next move.

Many have assumed that this delay is because Mauricio Pochettino’s side cannot afford to match our better our bid due to the FFP constraints that they must act within, with the delay being caused as hope we will back away.

It seems then that there is a real struggle from the Stamford Bridge club to stay in this race but if this game of poker backfires on us, we are leaving less and less time to find ourselves a replacement for the Ecuadorian.

Jurgen Klopp will understandably be frustrated with the current position but he and we must all wait before we see what happens with this most remarkable transfer pursuit of the record-breaking 21-year-old.

  1. Talk of CFC selling Kapa to Real Madrid for £70 mil because Courtois is out for season. This would give them the funds for Caicedo. Good get it sorted

  2. Personally I don’t want him certainly not worth that type of money but why do we want a player who doesn’t want us?

    1. As a red fan a super red fan , I don’t want him he is not a red or has love for the reds he can stay , I would work with Jones or any of the young ones we have , that’s an FSG problem, that’s one they created by waiting to long leaving JKlop hanging out there so FSG must go , they don’t love the game they are takers not giving us what we need ,FSG PLEASE GO SELL TO ANY ONE PLEASE …

    2. I support you on that , why should you we invest that kind of money who does not want to be a red blooded man , let him stay with the blue blooded people , they aren’t worth it , and let me say his agent kaicedo’s agent is a crooked man who walked a crooked mile so he is a crook , Caicedo need to grow up …

  3. There has always been a hate relationship with Chelski they have always poked their noses in our business Torres, Gerrard, William Salah originally I think so if they had not poked the Bear with the Lavia deal they would have had Caciedo by now keep your noses out of our deals

  4. I will quit LFC if they still want to sign Caicedo, it’s better to be relegated than to sign someone who doesn’t want to play for us…
