Moisés Caicedo proved wrong again as Liverpool’s gap widens amid Chelsea’s transfer nightmare

Sep 25, 2023 #Moisés Caicedo

Moisés Caicedo’s agent doubled down on a move from Liverpool in the summer, but Chelsea are making that talk worse every week.

Make no mistake, Chelsea are a complete mess. And perhaps no one deserves it more than Liverpool.

Another ridiculous move for Todd Boehly in the summer, which took his total spending at the club over $1 billion, almost completely overhauled the Blues squad over the past year.

The result of such reckless spending? Three defeats from their opening six games and Sunday’s defeat at Aston Villa means Chelsea have now won just six of their last 35 Premier League games.

With just 30 points this term, the Blues would be firmly in the relegation battle, if not already in contention, if this were the season.

Liverpool, on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last 17 league games and already 11 points ahead of Chelsea this season, making Moisés Caicedo’s decision to swoop for the Reds in the summer all the more perplexing.

The midfielder doubled down on his decision to force a move to Chelsea despite Liverpool accepting a bid from Brighton when his agent Andrea Pellegatt lifted the lid a few days ago. “116 million pounds, which is equal to 133 million euros ($142 million).

The result of a long work for a player who progressed quickly in England when he moved to Belgium. With De Zerbi he exploded and then we arrived at Chelsea. Liverpool ., with whom they fought for it, Pellegatti told Italian Sport when asked to explain the fee that Chelsea agreed with Brighton.

“The amount paid is not a coincidence. It was completed in the last hours, but the boy only wanted Chelsea, who have consistently shown their interest since January.”

Caicedo’s heart could have moved to Chelsea, but his decision is becoming harder and harder to justify with every game.

Liverpool had an established manager in European football and he already showed in the final entry of last season that he is changing his form.

Chelsea, on the other hand, were under their fifth manager in less than a year, had just finished in the bottom half of the table and had done little to sort out the bloated squad that was seen as the main reason for their poor form. . last season

And of course he wasn’t the only player to ditch Anfield for Stamford Bridge, with Roméo Lavia making the same call after Liverpool’s failure with Caicedo.

The Ecuador international could do very well at Chelsea, but at the moment his decision feels like a mistake that will only get bigger by the week.

This should be a lesson to all other players facing the same choice.
