Manchester United have reportedly secured the transfer of Ecuador international Moises Caicedo.
Italian giants AC Milan were also thought to be in the hunt for the Independiente del Valle star but United appear to have won the race.
And according to Diario Extra, agreements have been reached among all parties and Caicedo will sign the contract in the coming hours.
If the deal goes through, he will be the second player from Ecuador to represent Manchester United.
The first was Antonio Valencia, who left in 2019 after a decade at Old Trafford.
Caicedo has made no secret of his desire to join United and named Paul Pogba as one of his idols, along with Chelsea star N’Golo Kante.
He has been capped four times by his country and scored his first goal at international level in a 4-2 win over Uruguay in October.
It’s thought the deal will cost United around £5.5million plus add-ons and a 20% sell-on clause.
‘We have received an offer from a European club for Moises Caicedo, we are negotiating the proposal,’ said Morales.
‘It is most likely that he will not be in our team in 2021 due to the proposal we’ve received, it is very difficult to keep him.’
