After finishing his loan spell at Juventus, Martín Cáceres will become subject to interest from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur with both clubs considering a summer move for the player.
Cáceres is currently enjoying a period on loan from Sevilla but is expected to return to the Primera Division outfit at the end of this season.
The South American has been loaned out to Juventus in the past and began his second stint with the club in perfect fashion, netting a brace on his second debut in a Copa Italia fixture against AC Milan.
The 24 year-old has also made 38 appearances for the Uruguayan national side since debuting in 2007 and played a big role in the nation’s 2011 Copa America winning tournament.
Manchester United have appeared to come up short this season under the absence of Nemanja Vidic, who suffered a season-ending knee twist earlier in the campaign.
To add to the club’s woes, Rio Ferdinand is spending an increasing amount of time on the sidelines with injury and many have criticised the performances of Jonny Evans who may not hack it at the Premier League outfit for much longer.
Tottenham have also been linked with defensive moves of their own with Ledley King’s contract expiring at the end of this season and only a short-term deal expected to be offered.
Should the ex-Barcelona youngster leave Sevilla, his signature would be expected to cost around £11m; a fee both sides would be able to afford as they seek to achieve bigger success in the 2012-13 campaign.
