If both Liverpool and United lock horns in a bid to sign Caicedo, it could be their second transfer tussle as both sides have been linked with Bellingham. The Red Devils could have an advantage over their rivals in a potential pursuit however due to club chief John Murtough.
According to The Athletic, United have kept a close eye on Bellingham’s development and put in extensive work to try and beat Dortmund to his signature three years ago. Murtough hosted the Bellingham family at Carrington and maintains a relationship with his father, Mark, to this day.
There has been a reported price tag set of £130million for Bellingham though, while Caicedo may not be much cheaper as Potter previously said a £42m bid for the Ecuador international would only be enough to pay for his boots.
