Manchester United return to action on Thursday as they welcome Spanish side Sevilla to Old Trafford for the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final. 

The Red Devils go into the game off the back of a 2-0 win over Everton on Saturday, and manager Erik ten Hag will be hoping that his side can produce another impressive display.

They will, however, be without forward Marcus Rashford, who has been ruled out for at least a couple of weeks after picking up an injury during the win over Everton.

United look set to be busy during the upcoming summer transfer window, although it appears that they would have to spend big to land two of their top targets.

According to Football Insider, The Red Devils are eyeing moves for Brighton and Hove Albion duo Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister, although the pair could cost United more than £150 million.

The report claims that the Manchester club are hoping to improve their midfield this summer, with a number of their current crop of players likely to leave.

Mac Allister and Caicedo have both reportedly attracted interest from Manchester United

Loanee Marcel Sabitzer is set to return to parent club Bayern Munich, while the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay could depart the club.

With that in mind, those in charge of United have identified the Brighton duo as targets to bolster Ten Hag’s squad.

Caicedo, 21, has been in fine form for The Seagulls over the past 18 months, although his impressive performances have also attracted interest from clubs including Arsenal and Chelsea.

Mac Allister, meanwhile, was part of the Argentina squad that lifted the World Cup in December, and has also been heavily linked with a move away from the south coast.

The midfielder has made more than 100 appearances for his current side, but could depart when the transfer window opens with Brighton reportedly ready to accept an offer of around £70 million for the Argentine.

In January, Caicedo was the subject of numerous offers from Premier League leaders Arsenal, although his current employers stood firm and rejected all of them.

He has since signed a new contract that runs until 2027, while Mac Allister is contracted to The Seagulls until 2025.
