According to a report from Football Transfers published today, Manchester City is willing to sell Kalvin Phillips in January.
According to the rumor, Pep Guardiola, the manager of City, truly wants Phillips to depart so he can bring in a replacement.
In January 2024, Manchester City is prepared to sell Kalvin Phillips.
According to reports, during the summer transfer window, Guardiola was prepared to sell Phillips to Fulham.
The Citizens and Cottagers were negotiating a deal for Phillips.
When Joao Palhinha left for Bayern Munich in the final days of the summer transfer window, Fulham began to consider the former Leeds United player as a possible replacement.
In the last hours, Palhinha’s probable transfer to Bayern fell through, and Phillips remained at City.
The 27-year-old midfielder didn’t want to leave in the summer transfer window, and while City and Guardiola are prepared to let Phillips go, a possible January transfer hinges on what he would like to do.
Kalvin Phillips needs to think carefully about staying with Manchester City.
In our opinion, England international Kalvin Phillips should seriously contemplate his future if Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola does not like him any longer and does not believe that he is good enough for his club.
Of course, every football player wants to play for a successful team.
And City wins a lot.
After all, the Citizens triumphed in the FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, and Premier League last year.
For Phillips, too, it would be a waste if he spent every game warming the bench and never got to play.
Since joining City from Leeds in the summer of 2022, the midfielder has only had a minor role.
For City past season, Phillips made 10 substitute appearances and two starts in the Premier League.
Only 45 minutes have been played by the £150,000 per week (Spotrac) England international in the Premier League thus far this season.
