Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is now ready for the next big step in his football career, MySportDab reports.
Ndidi signed for Leicester from Genk in 2017 for £17million, which is now a bargain thanks to his brilliant performances.
The 25-year-old Nigerian has been one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League for more than three years.
With Nemanja Matic likely to leave soon, Manchester United will need to sign a new defensive midfielder.
Paul Pogba is now more likely to leave the Red Devils when his contract expires at the end of the season.
United’s lack of a defensive midfielder has proved to be one of their biggest problems in the Premier League this season.
Now, A close source to Ndidi has revealed some information about the player’s next plans for the future.
A source told MySportDab: “Wilfred would love to take that next big step, and Manchester United is undoubtedly one of the Premier League’s biggest clubs.
When asked if Ndidi would agree to sign for United, He said: “Yes, he is open to the idea but only if the two clubs can agree on a fee for the transfer. He won’t force a move to leave.”
