Sources: Man United plotting £150m double deal

Man United will have to pay around £150million to land Brighton duo Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo this summer, sources have told Football Insider.

Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag is eager to improve his midfield in the summer window, with Scott McTominay set to leave and Marcel Sabitzer set to return to parent club Bayern Munich.

Football Insider revealed on Tuesday (11 April) that Man United could land summer target Caicedo for £80million despite him signing a new Brighton contract just last month.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are also interested in the Ecuador international.

Meanwhile, it is believed that a bid of £70million will be enough to land World Cup winner Mac Allister this summer.

Caicedo’s Seagulls contract now runs until June 2027, while Mac Allister’s deal runs until June 2025.

Both players have been mainstays in Roberto De Zerbi’s side as the south coast club push for a first-ever European qualification.

Mac Allister has notched 10 goals and two assists across all competitions, while Caicedo has won plaudits with his displays in his first full Premier League season.

Brighton sit seventh in the table but will run the likes of Tottenham and Man United close for a higher finish.

Ten Hag’s side are fourth in the Premier League but can still add the Europa League and FA Cup to their League Cup triumph this season.

United take on Brighton in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley next week (23 April).
