Leicester City’s Wilfred Nididi, has been on Real Madrid’s list as manager Carlo Ancelotti demanded the signing of the Nigeria international.
Madrid are planning to secure the signing of Leicester City midfielder during the January transfer window.
Manchester United are also interested in the Eagles’ Star, but Madrid are ready to outsmart the Premier League giants to secure the signing of the 24-year-old midfielder in January, with Ancelotti viewing him as a long-term replacement for Casemiro.
Ancelotti has reportedly spoken with the club President Florentino Pérez that it is necessary to strengthen the midfield position in the next market with Ndidi the primary target.
The website wrote: “Casemiro does not have a permanent replacement on the roster.
“Eduardo Camavinga and Antonio Blanco are of a different profile, despite also being able to play as midfielders only in a 4-3-3, and they do not offer individual solutions at the defensive level at the Brazilian level, so Ancelotti is clear who he wants to be his New midfielder, both for the long term and to compete for ownership right now. We are talking about Wilfred Ndidi.
“The Nigerian, who has been on Real Madrid’s agenda for three years, has become one of the Premier League’s best midfielders since winning his starting spot at Leicester City and is destined to make the leap to a most important club with Manchester United following in their footsteps for the summer market.”
Ndidi, who has made 187 appearances for the Foxes since joining from Genk in January 2017, scored nine goals and made 11 assists in the process.
