Super Eagles star Ndidi in limbo about future at Leicester City

Ndidi

Leicester City and Wilfred Ndidi are yet to begin talks over a new deal.

The former Racing Genk midfielder has more than two years left on his contract with the Foxes. However, interest in his services have grown following his impressive performances at the King Power and on away grounds for Leicester City in the Premier League.

Manchester United and Aston Villa are two of the clubs reported to be plotting summer moves for the Nigerian international.

Leicester consider Ndidi to be a key part of the squad. However, no moves have been made to try to keep him at the King Power beyond the summer, especially with growing interest in his services.

There are also unfounded claims that the Foxes are planning to open talks over a new contract with the midfielder in the coming months.

Manchester United and Newcastle United to battle over Victor Osimhen in the summer

Elsewhere, Ndidi and Victor Osimhen could be Manchester United teammates in the summer as reports have emerged of a growing interest in the Napoli forward from the Red Devils.

United have struggled in front of goal this season, even with the enigmatic Cristiano Ronaldo leading the line. Creation could be their biggest problem, however, but the Red Devils believe that a good striker could also lead to better chances.

With Cristiano Ronaldo entering his twilight years and his stay at Old Trafford not assured beyond the season, Cavani's exit in the summer, and Anthony Martial unlikely to  remain at Old Trafford after his loan spell at Sevilla ends at the end of the season, United could be without a front man come the 2022/23 football season.

The Napoli star has been the toast of Europe’s biggest clubs and has been linked with Arsenal and Newcastle in the past. The 23-year-old is one of Europe's top marksmen and now Manchester United seem interested in his services according to Naples-based football outlet Area Napoli.

The outlet, however, claims that Newcastle United are the favorites to land him.

His contract at the Naples Club runs out in 2025 but president Aurelio De Laurentiis is said to be open to a transfer offer for the striker if the price is right.
