Manchester Evening News (MEN) sports pundit, Dominic Booth has told Manchester United to consider signing a defensive midfielder to bolster the squad ahead of next season and Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi has been identified as a potential target along with West Ham’s Declan Rice and Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli.
No player across Europe’s top five leagues has made more tackle than Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi in the last two years, as noted by respected statistics platform WhoScored?
Since August 2019, Ndidi has successfully completed 224 tackles to beat Manchester United full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka – who made 217 tackles – to second place.
Ndidi has also been identified as Paul Pogba’s replacement if the Midfielder leaves next season after his contract has expired.
