Premier League

5 Teams Wilfred Ndidi Could Fit In If He Is Signed

Leicester City star Wilfred Ndidi is gaining a lot of attention for his role in the club's recent triumph against Manchester City.

The Foxes beats Pep Guardiola's men in the Community Shield, thanks to the lone goal scored by Kelechi Iheanacho in the 90th minute of the encounter. Note that the Community Shield is always contested by the previous seasons' premier league winners and the FA Cup winners.

However, Wilfred Ndidi's performance in the win has seen many people rain praises for his name, with Darren Bent suggesting he is the missing jigsaw puzzle in Manchester United midfield.

As much as the player is wanted by many fans who have little or no role to play in their club's decision to sign any footballer, it's important to note that the Nigeria international midfielder would flourish if he is signed by any of the following teams.

(1) Chelsea

The Blues tradition of using 2 defensive-minded midfielders in almost all their matches will see Ndidi flourish as he would have the freedom to roam backward and forth.

He is a Kante-like kind of player and his shooting ability will make him more successful.

(2) Arsenal

Arsenal is currently blessed with lots of options in the middle of the field, with the likes of Thomas Partey, Mohamed Elneny, and new signing Albert Sambi Lokonga all taking their turns in different matches.

However, aside from Partey, Ndidi would be an upgrade to the other aforementioned players and that would see both the player and the team at large amassing great success.

(3) Real Madrid

The Spanish giant fields one of the best midfield trio which comprises Casemiro, Modric, and Kroos but a further addition won't be a bad idea.

Wilfred Ndidi would provide a worthy competition and cover for the aforementioned triad.

(4) Barcelona

The Catalan club is currently cash strapped and they are still struggling with the registration of their new signings.

However, with Messi out of the squad, a new man needs to take the mantle and many are supporting Pedri to step up. Ndidi would provide the youngster with the needed cover to excel going forward.

Some would say Sergio Busquets and Frankie De Jong should be doing that but in all honesty, Busquets is aging and De Jong loves attacking, leaving the defense exposed to counter-attack from the opposition.

(5) Manchester United

The Red Devils were relatively active in the transfer market with the addition of Sancho and the imminent arrival of Raphael Varane.

However, as I said earlier, Ndidi is wanted by many Manchester United fans and I feel he would be a perfect fit for the current crop of players at Old Trafford.

Imagine a midfield trio of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandez, and Wilfred Ndidi. Thomas Tuchel and Pep Guardiola's team would likely struggle to curtail this combination.
