After completing Haaland’s deal, Man City will eye for Phillips

Reports say that after Erling Haaland joins Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund, they will turn their attention to Aston Villa’s Kalvin Phillips.

Phillips, who is 26, has been a transfer target for Villa for a long time. The club first tried to sign him after being promoted to the Premier League in 2019.

Links to a move to Villa Park started to come up again as the summer transfer window got closer. After Leeds United avoided relegation on the last day of the season, a price of around £60 million was put on his services.

But Pep Guardiola’s City team could be about to deal Villa a huge blow in the transfer market if they pursue a deal for the England international. They look likely to do this after signing Erling Haaland for £51 million earlier today.

The Times says that City is now looking to replace Fernandinho in midfield by bringing in a new player. The Brazilian left City when his contract ended after nine years, and Phillips has been chosen to take his place. City will reportedly try to sign the 26-year-old before they go on their pre-season tour of the United States in the middle of July.
