Kalvin Phillips is a talented English professional footballer who currently plays as a central midfielder for the Premier League club Manchester City. Born on December 2, 1995, in Leeds, England, Phillips started his youth career at the Leeds United Academy and made his professional debut for the club in 2015.
Known for his excellent passing ability, high work rate, and physicality. Phillips is widely regarded as one of the best young midfielders in the game. He has also earned international recognition, representing the England national team at the Euro 2020 tournament. The Euro’s performance followed by his form in the Premier League earned him a transfer to Manchester City.
The failed transfer of Kalvin Phillips to Manchester City
Phillips’ move to Manchester City is seen as a significant step forward in his career. Many fans are excited to see what he can achieve at the club. But things didn’t go the way he wanted them to go. Frequent injuries along with limited playtime brought a barrier to his development. However, the determined midfielder would always have the backing of Gareth Southgate. He continued to let Phillips play for England even though his club form was poor.
A season to forget
He featured in the Premier League only 5 times this season and failed to make an impact in either of them. Pep Guardiola still believed to have faith in his midfielder. Many Manchester City players flourished in the second season after having a poor first season. The likes of Joao Cancelo and Nathan Ake are prime examples of this.
Manchester City looking to cash in on Phillips
Manchester City is losing their patience with Kalvin Phillips as every day passes in the Premier league. They could accept if the right offer comes in. With the likes of Everton and Wolves being interested it is looking more likely that he would leave. If the midfielder could stay fit and show his worth in training Pep Guardiola might keep him. With Manchester City looking at other options in the midfield this summer it would be better for both parties to part ways this summer.
