Wilfred Ndidi is obviously an exceptional defensive-midfielder. These statistics prove he’s one of the world’s best, with Manchester United circling.

Yes, Foxes of Leicester stands by its statement placing Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi among the best defensive-minded midfielders in world football. It’s pretty obvious, as much as it pains a Foxes fan to admit it, that the Nigerian will likely end up at a giant club such as Real Madrid.

Backing that notion, is the fact that footballing database of the stars, WhoScored, named Ndidi as the eighth highest rated Premier League player in the entire division for 2019/20. That charting consists of all premiership athletes from every team and position. A quite stunning feat from the tackling genius.

Ndidi had a simply monumental job on Filbert Way from the moment he came in as a prospect, albeit a quality one who almost slotted straight away into the Foxes team. But replacing N’golo Kante cannot have been an easy mental proposal. With the Frenchman’s alien-like perception, challenging, tracking, engine and brain power, Ndidi has managed an incredible effort of replication.

Manchester United want Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi

According to Express, Manchester United have added the tall Fox to their transfer shortlist and are interested in signing him during the summer transfer window.

One reason this speculation may be unrealistic, in FoL’s opinion, is that the excellent Scott McTominay shares many similarities with his 23-year-old counterpart. Therefore the Red Devils don’t really require another DM.

The publication also suggests that Paris Saint-Germain, along with Madrid, are allegedly tracking Ndidi. While PSG’s desire for the Leicester City player has apparently now “cooled”. If Los Blancos sign Ajax’s Donny van de Beek, also wanted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United’s attention will turn to obtaining the Nigeria man’s signature, the story says.
