According to the report, City manager Pep Guardiola wants Phillips to depart so that he can acquire a replacement.
In January 2024, Manchester City is amenable to selling Kalvin Phillips.
According to reports, Guardiola was prepared to sell Phillips to Fulham during the summer transfer window.
The Cottagers and Citizens were negotiating a contract for Phillips.
Fulham were considering the former Leeds United star as a prospective replacement for Joao Palhinha, who was destined for Bayern Munich.
The prospective transfer of Palhinha to Bayern Munich fell through in the final hours, and Phillips remained with City.
Although City and Guardiola are reportedly willing to offload Phillips, the 27-year-old midfielder did not want to leave during the summer transfer window, and a potential January exit depends on what he wants to do.
Kalvin Phillips should carefully contemplate his future with Manchester City.
If Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola no longer likes Kalvin Phillips and believes he is not strong enough for his team, then the England international should consider his future options.
Yes, all football players desire to be on a successful team.
And City wins heavily.
Last season, Manchester City claimed the Premier League, the UEFA Champions League, and the FA Cup.
For Phillips personally, however, it would be a waste if he sat on the sideline week after week without playing.
Since his transfer from Leeds to City in the summer of 2022, the midfielder has been a marginal figure.
Last season, Phillips made two starts and ten substitute appearances for City in the Premier League.
This season, the £150,000-per-week (Spotrac) England international has played only 45 minutes in the Premier League.
