      It is not about joining Barca it’s about having playing time, not warming the bench just to win trophies.
      Super eagles going forward needs players that actively play for their clubs and not only employed by big names to warm bench.

    The Report is True! It on Goal.com too. And the move if made possible, Ndidi should make the move! NDIDI is a Hard-working Talented player. I don’t see a Manager keeping him on the bench even if it’s Madrid! He is walking right to that starting 11. Mark my words this day. Please make the move if Barca comes calling

    No one work harder than Ndidi on the field of play. He is the pillar and the back bone behand the Leicester doing so well in the Premier League. He will do so well anywhere he goes.

    If there is a chance for Ndidi to go barca, then there should not be a second thought about it. Ndidi is matured enough n has got the talent to thrive in any of the top three teams in the world.

        Idempho @ Ekpe my brother.seems like you just wanna score some points against me. Cos I can’t remember going against our players moving to top teams. But sure remember advising they make such move at the right time, after careful consideration of the odds, like attitude/ mentality of teams management, their development, clubs fans, position playing as against players already available in that position for such teams etc. But for Ndidi going to Barca,the tide regarding such odd swings to his favour.

    Guys relax!! It still a rumor. No offer made yet. Anyways Ndidi is one player that any coach will love to have in his team. A very professional and hardworking player.
