Manchester City price tag for Kalvin Phillips putting off suitors

Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips is reportedly expected to be sold permanently in the summer transfer window.

Kalvin Phillips is currently on loan at West Ham United after struggling to hold down a regular starting spot at Manchester City. According to a report from Football Insider, Manchester City are struggling to offload him permanently because of their asking price.

The Premier League giants are demanding around £40 million for the England international midfielder. However, his performances have been very poor since moving to Manchester City, and it seems highly unlikely that any club would be willing to pay £40 million for him.

Manchester City paid £45 million to sign the Englishman from Leeds United, and they are looking to recoup most of that amount by selling him for £40 million. It remains to be seen how the situation develops.

Phillips joined West Ham during the January transfer window to play regularly and get his career back on track. However, the loan has not gone according to plan, and he has been quite underwhelming for the London club. Nevertheless, the English international is a target for former club Leeds United.

Kalvin Phillips needs a fresh start

It seems that the England international needs a fresh start in the summer, and it will be interesting to see what he ends up. He was one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League during his time at Leeds. The 28-year-old will be desperate to get back to that level and he needs a permanent exit from Manchester City.

The Englishman is certainly good enough to play for the top clubs. But he will need time and guidance to regain his form and confidence once again. It will be interesting to see if Leeds try and sign him during the summer transfer window despite the hefty price tag.

A return to his former club could do him a world of good. It would give him a fresh start and a major confidence boost. However, Manchester City will have to be more reasonable with their demands, and it remains to be seen whether they are prepared to reduce the £40 million asking price in the coming weeks.

With the European Championships coming up this summer, Phillips will be hoping to be a part of the national team squad. It remains to be seen whether Gareth Southgate is willing to give him that opportunity despite him being quite poor this season.
