Man City: Pep expected to seal Kalvin Phillips swoop in the ‘coming weeks’

Man City: Pep expected to seal Kalvin Phillips swoop in the ‘coming weeks’ -Manchester City Transfer Rumours

Within the last 48 hours, a very promising Manchester City transfer update has now come to light involving Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips.

The Lowdown: Man City eye Phillips move…

Having clinched their fourth domestic crown in five seasons, the Premier League champions could be set for another eye-catching campaign under manager Pep Guardiola, going by recent reports.

It is believed that a plethora of Sky Blues first-teamers could potentially leave Eastlands, including the likes of Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan, Riyad Mahrez, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Nathan Ake (The Times).

Even Bernardo Silva is on the radar of La Liga giants Barcelona as sporting director Txiki Begiristain faces perhaps his biggest summer yet at the Etihad Stadium.

In terms of incomings, it is reliably believed that Leeds star Phillips and Brighton sensation Marc Cucurella are Guardiola’s top summer targets.

The Latest: Man City ‘expected’ to clinch Phillips deal…

According to a Football Insider report on Monday evening, City and Guardiola are ‘expected’ to complete a ‘big-money move’ for the Whites midfielder, who has his ‘heart set’ on a move to Eastlands.

The report added that Phillips has made it abundantly clear to ‘all parties’ behind the scenes that his wish is to join the English champions this summer, and a deal in the region of £50m could be done ‘in the coming weeks’.

The Verdict: Big news…

The 26-year-old has been a revelation at Elland Road when fit and available over the last two seasons, not to mention being a crucial player for the Whites.

Even though his impact wasn’t felt as much last term, Phillips did spend a lot of the 2021/22 campaign sidelined with a hamstring injury, missing 14 top-flight matches (Transfermarkt).

Would Phillips be a good signing for City?

Yes

Yes

No

No

When he did play, the England international averaged more successful tackles per 90 for Leeds last season than any City player managed under Guardiola – backing how he could add a sense of tenacity in rotation with Rodri as the pivot.

Shining for the Three Lions at Euro 2020 last year, it’s little wonder that Phillips is seen as a ‘superstar‘ in Yorkshire, as explained by BBC presenter Kelly Somers.

Sealing an agreement for the midfield maestro could be a brilliant bit of business for City.
