Manchester United increase interest in Kalvin Phillips

The search continues for Manchester United as they seek a long-term solution in the midfield position at Old Trafford, and their longing gaze has turned to Leeds United England international Kalvin Phillips.

According to the SkySports transfer talk, the Leeds native is now high on the priority list of the Red Devils, who have started looking for alternatives to fellow England midfielder Declan Rice.

United had previously designated Rice as their main transfer target for next summer earlier this month, but Ole Gunner Solskjær’s men may have to pass as the Hammers remain firmly determined to receive a high fee for their product from the academy and have recently set a ‘reserve’ figure of £ 90 million if they are going to part with their key core asset.

With Phillips always drawing the attention of the bigger clubs after his star has risen rapidly in the last two seasons, Leeds United has countered the interest with hitting a £ 60 million price tag on local hero.

If that fee is received in the future, it would constitute a club record fee for the Elland Road side, nearly doubling the money earned by Rio Ferdinand’s big move to United nearly 20 years ago.

The midfielder fits in perfectly with what ails the Red Devils

There are no two ways about it; Kalvin Phillips is undoubtedly one of the main reasons why Leeds United return to the Premier League.

Although Marcelo Bielsa’s men haven’t had the start to the 2021-22 campaign that many expected to see after the Whites finished in the top half of the table on their return to the top echelon of English football, Phillips remains arguably the one. most consistent player under the Argentine.

His immediate impact on shaping the national team with Gareth Southgate as he shone at Euro2020 is a testament to his quiet effectiveness. Plus, his best qualities – ability to play the ball, astute reading of game passages, and metrics to win the ball – are precisely what United needs as one of the missing pieces of the puzzle.
