Transfers: Manchester United interested in Leicester City and Super Eagles star
The Red Devils spent heavily in the summer window, and they are set to continue when the winter window opens in January
Manchester United are interested in signing Super Eagles and Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi when the transfer market opens in January.
According to Spanish publications Fichajes, Ndidi is the priority for the Red Devils as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to solve his midfield problems.
The defensive midfield position has been a problem for United in the last few years, with the likes of Fred and Matic failing to impress in that role.
Ndidi could be the perfect solution to the club’s woes as he has shown he is one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League and the world.
United fans had even urged the club to sign the 24-year-old Nigerian in the summer. However, he is likely to cost a fortune as he is currently valued at 66m euros, while his current contract at the King Power Stadium does not expire until 2024.

The Super Eagles star joined Leicester City from Genk in January 2017 and has gone on to become one of the key players in the Foxes team.
He is the glue that holds the team together, setting up the foundation for their attack while breaking the opposition’s attacking flow.
He has made the sixth-highest number of interceptions in the Premier League this season, while no one has made more since the 2019/2020 season.
Ndidi has also made the most number of tackles in the league within this period, although he sits in 15th place this season.
The Nigerian international is currently injured and has been ruled out of action for up to five weeks.
