City Outcast Set to Trade Guardiola for ‘Peak Years’ with the Hammers

Pep Guardiola


Despite Manchester City being crowned Champions of England once again and widely regarded as one of the best teams in Premier League history. There is advice for one of their stars to contemplate their future.

With an exceptional squad and the potential to secure a treble this season, several City players are rightfully receiving praise. However, Kalvin Phillips has given advise to thoughtfully evaluate his own path ahead.


Following his £42m transfer from Leeds United last summer, Kalvin Phillips has encountered a challenging debut season at Manchester City. The England international faced spells on the sidelines and found it difficult to displace Rodri as a regular starter in the team.

Gabriel Agbonlahor, a former professional footballer, suggests that Phillips should contemplate a departure from Manchester City. During the upcoming summer transfer window in order to secure more consistent playing time elsewhere.


According to Gabriel Agbonlahor, Pep Guardiola consistently includes Kalvin Phillips in Manchester City’s lineup for every match. Whether it’s a significant FA Cup clash. Carabao Cup encounter, or any other game. There have even been instances where Ilkay Gundogan has come in Phillips’ position instead of Rodri. Agbonlahor suggests that Guardiola tends to prioritize other players over Phillips, and if he desires to secure a place in the European Championships next summer. the 27-year-old should consider leaving City during the current transfer window. Despite the team already clinching the league title, Phillips made his first Premier League start for City against Chelsea.

City and their pursuits


Throughout all competitions, Kalvin Phillips has made 19 appearances for Manchester City, with the majority of those being substitute roles. Although his impact in Manchester has relatively limited, Phillips continues to attract interest from other clubs.

Having demonstrated his prowess as one of the premier defensive midfielders in the league during his tenure at Leeds United, the 27-year-old retains a strong reputation in the footballing world. West Ham United is one of the clubs to be in interests in securing his services.


Kalvin Phillips has not only displayed his quality on the domestic front but has also made a positive impact on the international stage. Earning praise from England manager Gareth Southgate. With reports suggesting that West Ham United is in the market for a replacement for Declan Rice. Who is in anticipation to depart this summer, the club has emerged as a potential destination for Phillips.

Gabriel Agbonlahor opines that a move to West Ham could prove to be the ideal career move for Phillips at this stage. Agbonlahor suggests that joining a team like Crystal Palace or West Ham. Where he would be a key figure in the starting lineup. Could provide Phillips with the opportunity to showcase his talents consistently.
