Chelsea look like they have taken return control of the Moises Caicedo saga from Liverpool and they hope to have the deal done by the time the two Clubs face off on Sunday afternoon. 

Liverpool had a £110m bid accepted by Brighton for the midfielder on Friday and it looked like the Ecuador Live would be moving Up North to Anfield. However, Chelsea have taken return control of the deal and will soon Monitor a ultimate bid worth more than the £110m offered by the Merseyside Club.

Caicedo will sign a long-term contract at Stamford Bridge and the Blues hope to have the 21-year-old at the stadium on Sunday for their clash with Jurgen Klopp’s side.
