A report on the website reads: “Real Madrid have among their priorities the arrival of a new midfielder to their ranks. Merengue coach Zinedine Zidane only has the Brazilian Casemiro as a specialist in the defensive midfield position after Marcos Llorente’s departure to Atlético de Madrid last summer.
“In this situation, other proper names emerge. And one of the options that most seduces and is echoed by the information published by Central Defense is the one featuring Nigerian Wilfred Ndidi."
