Leeds: Journalist drops Kalvin Phillips claim

Leeds: Journalist drops Kalvin Phillips claim -Leeds United News

Journalist Jacque Talbot is ‘sure’ that Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips will sign for Manchester City this summer.

The Lowdown: City move ‘in motion’

Pep Guardiola’s side have made the 26-year-old a top target this summer as they look to replace Fernandinho at the Etihad Stadium.

Reports have stated that the Premier League champions feel that the Leeds midfielder fits the profile of their current squad, with City journalist Tom Young believing that a move is ‘in motion’.

Phillips is entering the final two years of his Elland Road contract and hasn’t signed new terms since the club’s return to the top flight.

The Latest: Talbot’s claim on Phillips

Talbot shared his thoughts regarding Phillips’ future in Yorkshire via Twitter on Friday afternoon.

The journalist thinks that the ‘imminent’ pull of Champions League football, a ‘considerable wage increase’ and the World Cup in November could be enough for a move to go through, with Talbot ending his thread by admitting that he is ‘sure this one gets done’.

The Verdict: Valuation must be met…

With Leeds avoiding the drop on the final day of the season against Brentford, they are no longer in a position where they need to sell any of their stars in cut-price deals.

Phillips is the Whites’ most valuable player alongside Raphinha and the only holding midfielder at the club, so they shouldn’t feel any pressure to cash in unless their valuation is met.

Will Phillips be a Leeds player next season?

Yes, 100%

No, I think he'll leave

Reports have recently suggested that Leeds want more than £50m for the 26-year-old. Should he leave, Victor Orta and Jesse Marsch will need to act fast on bringing in midfield reinforcements or risk entering the new season extremely short of options in the middle of the park.
