Reporter Joo Dae-eun = Manchester City plans to dispose of Calvin Phillips.
On the 21st (Korean time), the British media ‘Daily Star’ reported, “Manchester City will allow Calvin Phillips to leave the club in the January transfer window.”
Phillips was recognized for his skills at Leeds United last season and moved to Manchester City. When he was at his best, he was evaluated as having excellent forward passing ability, so much so that he was called ‘Yorkshire Pirlo’.

Phillips is desperate to get playing time. Your team needs to perform well in order to participate in Euro 2024, which will be held in Germany next summer. As there are currently no positions available at Manchester City, the possibility of a transfer has increased.
The team that Phillips is currently involved with is none other than the German powerhouse Bayern Munich. British media ’90min’ reported, “Joao Palinha is still Bayern Munich’s top target. Munich is considering Calvin Phillips as an alternative to Palinha.”
Bayern Munich is short on midfield resources this season, especially defensive midfielders. There is no fielder. German media outlet Bild said, “Munich coach Tuchel wants a defensive midfielder. Currently, Munich’s midfield includes Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, and Konrad Reimer, but Tuchel considers them to be number 8 (central midfielder) rather than number 6 (defensive midfielder).”
Munich targeted Fulham’s Palinha in the last transfer market. In fact, the transfer came close to being completed, but fell through as Fulham was unable to find a replacement for Palinha. Eventually, Palinha renewed his contract with Fulham.카지노사이트
