Manchester City fans want to sign Kalvin Phillips after they were said to keeping an eye on the Leeds United midfielder.
The past campaign was a mixed one for the Citizens – they did manage to win the Premier League and the League Cup, but they lost to Chelsea 1-0 in Porto in the Champions League final, the one trophy they wanted to win more than any other. Pep Guardiola and co will now be looking to see what they can do during the summer transfer window to put them in the best possible position for next season.
According to Stuart Brennan of the Manchester Evening News, City have been watching the development of £27m-valued Phillips (Transfermarkt), who is currently at Euro 2020 with England.
Would you like to sign Kalvin Phillips?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their desire to capture the 25-year-old, with one fan calling the Leeds man ‘exceptional’:
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Phillips news below
“rice and phillips both expectional but not a priority fernandinho shows age is just a number. KANE AND JACK A MUST.”
“Please sign him, since ‘Buster’ left I’ve only been able to have SWP on my shirt as the closest approximation of my name.”
“I would take Phillips all day long at City. I know Dinho is extending and we have Rodri but Dinho is gonna be that dressing room guy and probably play 10-15 games in all comps next season. So it would basically be Phillips and Rodri battling it out for the CDM spot.”
Linking @Kalvinphillips to @ManCity is the best transfer rumor I’ve heard in a while!! Great player and locks down the center for both @LUFC and @EnglandFootball
