'Barca, Bayern, Juventus, Atletico Madrid keeping tabs' - Ex-England star predicts what will happen to Ndidi

Ex-England international Carlton Palmer has predicted that Barcelona-linked midfielder Wilfred Ndidi will leave Leicester City in the January transfer window.


Barely a month after the end of the summer transfer window, the Super Eagles midfielder is  being linked with a move away from the Foxes.


Besides Barcelona,  Athletico Madrid and Juventus are also monitoring the siuation of the Nigeria international , while Bayern Munich had him on their radar in the summer window. 

Ndidi is running into the final months of his contract with the one-time Premier League champions, and there are no signs that he wants to extend his stay at the King Power Stadium.


Palmer has suggested that the Nigerian midfielder will leave Leicester City in the winter transfer window


"Barcelona along with several other top European clubs including Bayern Munich, Juventus and Atletico Madrid are all keeping tabs on Nigerian international Wilfred Ndidi," he told Football League  World.


"It was believed that the 26-year-old would've been sold following Leicester's relegation to the Championship, but they were asking for too much money.


"Ndidi has started all of Leicester's eight Championship games so far this season as they sit top of the Championship.

"The problem Leicester have is that Ndidi is in the final year of his contract."


They don't know which league they're going to be in so it's difficult for them, I'm sure they would offer him a contract to protect themselves still only being 26.


"But I think it's going to very difficult to get him to commit to signing a new deal, at Christmas he could be going to a club to play Champions League football.


"So the likelihood in my opinion is that he'll probably leave in the January transfer window so Leicester can avoid losing him for nothing next summer."


Ndidi has been in stellar form since the start of the campaign for Enzo Maresca's side, registering four goal contributions in 11 games across all competitions.


Maresca will be hoping that Ndidi will stay at Leicester City until the end of the campaign as they seek to return to the Premier League.
