  • Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi could be on his way to Manchester United this summer
  • This is if those in charge of the Old Trafford giants should listen to talk from Daniel Murphy
  • The football pundit is of the view that the Leicester City midfielder would help Man United next term

English football pundit Daniel Murphy has stated clearly that Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi will be a good signing for Manchester United if the Red Devils should go for the Nigerian footballer.

With the 2022/23 Premier League season coming to an end, Manchester United and other clubs are expected to bolster their squads with the signings of fresh legs.

Ndidi and his teammates at Leicester City have been relegated and Murphy thinks Manchester United should go for the Nigerian.

According to the report on All Nigerian Soccer, Murphy claimed that Ndidi is an experienced footballer who will fit perfectly well for Manchester United.

Murphy wants Ndidi at Man United

"An experienced Premier League option - perhaps Wilfred Ndidi - would add that bit of extra steel, strength, and passing proficiency United could do with.''

Ndidi joined Leicester City in 2016 and has tallied 237 appearances for them in all competitions, scoring eleven goals for the Foxes.

Nigerians want Ndidi at Arsenal

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Nigerian fans have appealed to Arsenal's directors to sign Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi from Leicester City instead of signing West Ham United captain, Declan Rice during the summer.

The Gunners have been linked with a move to sign Rice as they look to bolster their squad for next term.

So far this season, Rice has been one of the best defensive midfielders in the English top flight, with Arsenal, not the only side monitoring the England international.

Fans are of the view that Ndidi will be the better option for Arsenal.

Price would be a consideration - with the Nigerian more cost-effective than signing Rice for £120 million - and they believe he is a better player.
