Manchester United scouts monitored the situation of Leicester City’s new signing Wilfred Ndidi, while he was on his international duty with Nigeria against Senegal, as per All Nigeria Soccer.

The game took place back on March 23rd and ended with the teams locking horns at 1-1, and the same source has added that the scouts from a number of top European clubs were spotted.

To name a few, scouts from Manchester United, Newcastle United, West Bromwich Albion, Crystal Palace, Besiktas, CSKA Moscow, and Standard Liege had their representatives in Barnet’s Hive Stadium to scout some of the best African talents.

“Many European scouts came to watch the game but they will be largely disappointed that the second game against Burkina Faso didn’t hold. It will be too emotional to judge a player with just one game,” revealed a ‘top scout’.

POLL: Who Should Be A Replacement For Michael Carrick?

The six-time capped Nigerian, Ndidi joined the Foxes back in January from Gent for a reported fee of £17m. He has made 10 Premier League appearances for the team and has bagged one goal and one assist.

Known for his versatility, the 20-year-old Ndidi is capable of playing anywhere across the midfielding line and can also be used as a defender, mainly due to his towering physique. And this attribute makes him a perfect replacement of Michael Carrick at Manchester United.

Leicester, however, are expected to do everything in their power to hold on to him for as long as possible.
