Manchester United manager and scouts will keep a close watch on Super Eagles and Leicester City top player, Wilfred Ndidi as both club go for broke in their chase for next season’s Champions League ticket.
There were initial plans by Red Devil scouts to recommend the Nigerian for a possible move to Old Trafford in January window with age catching up Nemanja Matic, but the interest die down following Scot McTominay resurgence before global lockdown.
Ndidi is one of Leicester’s players of the season given his sterling performance for the club . The Nigerian has been incredibly influential in the middle of the park for the Foxes, who went through a poor run of form mid-season when he was on the sidelines due to a knee injury.
Ndidi has made 123 tackles in the Premier League this term – the only player who has made any more is our very own, Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Since joining Leicester in January 2017, Ndidi has faced Manchester United six times in the Premier League, with The Foxes losing five of the matches and drawing the other.
Leicester City signed defensive midfielder Wilfred Ndidi for a reported £15m from Belgian side Genk on a five-and-a-half-year deal.
Ndidi was earmarked as a long-term replacement for N’Golo Kanté, who Leicester sold to Chelsea in the summer and proved to be a good signing for the Foxes.
Ndidi moved to Genk from Nathaniel Boys of Lagos after impressing during a trial and made his debut in January 2015 as a centre-half. He can also play at right-back.
