Manchester City, Bayern Munich Chase Flying Eagles Defender

European giants, Manchester City and Bayern Munich are among the clubs monitoring Flying Eagles defender, Benjamin Frederick.

The centre-back is one of the key members of Nigeria’s U-20 side.

According to transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, the two clubs alongside LaLiga outfit, Villarreal have their scouts monitoring Frederick at the ongoing 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina.

The 19-year-old has featured in three games for the Flying Eagles in the competition.

The youngster also starred for the team at the 2023 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations early this year in Egypt.

Frederick was named in the Team of the Tournament.

Anderlecht, FC Midtylland and RB Leipzig also took interest in the player after the competition.

    I hope he finishes the tournament on a high note and nick a great deal. He is the replacement to Joseph Yobo I love everything about his game…. it’s been a long time I witnessed a top defender in this country.

      The computer, a fan called him that name here, at the last afcon edition, i forgot the fans name i think it was either aphyldagreat, or greenturf, that name is indeed his real name, his father called him that name on his birth.but people laffed over it.hahaha, the guy is indeed a computer, such a great defender of the future, the computer! Sorry i diď want to call it again, the first nigeria computer diffensive engineer.
      Infact his diffensive movements is suspected to be a robotic programing, when he came back for the argentina game after missing the brazil game, he was like the return of the dragon part 4 FIFA is investigating him though, lastly he is THE COMPUTER

    In my opinion, it would be beneficial if his agency takes steps to prevent the top-tier European clubs from pursuing him at the moment. Instead, he should consider honing his skills and gaining experience by joining clubs in the Belgian league, such as Club Brugge or Genk.

    I think france or portugal will be better place to start

    He should go to Bayern, because for sure he will play for them next season. I’m not so sure about City, but he’ll play at least 15 games next season for the current Bayern team. The boy is that good.

    And just to add, that he has more ball sense than all the centre backs currently in the Super Eagles; so I have no doubt that he’ll be in the next team list, and will likely become a regular by next year.

    Another cool calculative player just the gentle giant, Uche Okechekwu, of the all conquering 94 Super Eagles set.
    He needs a club that will be ready to nurture and help him become a defensive kingpin in the very near future. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a big club or not. So long they are ready to help him grow. The young man has so much potential to become great.
