A Leicester City star is said to desire a transfer away from the Foxes following a disappointing start to the season. Will Wilfred Ndidi leave?

Leicester fans will be devastated if the Nigeria international departs King Power Stadium, it is as simple as that. And the Blue Army will be particularly dubious over these latest claims concerning one of their prominent assets.

Why will the supporters question this piece of speculation? Basically the story emanated from Spanish media and is not being talked about or referenced in national media here. There are also no direct links with regard to Spain and Ndidi.

Sadly, there may be truth to the claim that the defensive-minded midfielder is angling for a transfer: LCFC failed to qualify for the Champions League on two excruciating occasions; a competition Ndidi is at the standard of. Additionally, Leicester’s borderline pathetic beginning to the 2021/22 campaign overall will be a worry to the entire squad – not merely the stars.

Ndidi is invariably Leicester’s linchpin in the middle of the pitch and the east Midlanders’ owners will naturally do anything possible to keep the 24-year-old. If a team makes a breakthrough, you can expect the figures to be higher than Ben Chilwell’s sale fee. Below is the rumour:

Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is reportedly a top target for Manchester United.

The same report also claims that Ndidi is “thinking about a way out” of Leicester following the Foxes’ disappointing start to the season.

Leicester City international updates

On Monday, a host of Foxes featured for their countries, here is a roundup of the latest games.  Five Leicester players played at the start of the week – and, encouragingly, all of them were on the winning national side.

Danny Ward and Wales beat Estonia; Caglar Soyuncu’s Turkey overcame Latvia; meanwhile England Under21 star Luke Thomas was involved in their win in Andorra; finally the English U-18s were victorious, thanks partly to Sammy Braybrooke and Kian Pennant of LCFC.
