Premier League team won’t back out of deal to sign Manchester City player
They are not giving up on their plan to sign Kalvin Phillips from Manchester City this month.
That’s what Rudy Galetti says.
What’s going on with Kalvin Phillips at Manchester City these days? Let’s look…
News about Kalvin Phillips
Well, talkSPORT recently said that Newcastle was having a hard time negotiating with Manchester City because the champions want to add an obligation to buy at the end of any loan deal.
Newcastle didn’t want to make such a big deal until they had a chance to really look at Phillips on a normal loan.
Then there was no more talk of the England player going to Tyneside, which suggests that talks may have broken down. However, Galetti now says that Newcastle are still putting “pressure” on Manchester City to make a deal.
The Italian reporter wrote on X (which used to be called Twitter): “Newcastle are still putting pressure on Phillips to sign.” NUFC and Man City are still talking about a loan move.
It’s important for Kalvin to join the Magpies because of EURO 2024.
Manchester City has a plan for what to do next.
It’s already clear to Manchester City what they want to do after Phillips leaves the Etihad Stadium.
Sky Sports reported that Txiki Begiristain is looking for a young, local central midfielder to replace the 28-year-old.
If the Director of Football at Manchester City can’t find a player like that, Joao Neves, who is currently 87th best for Benfica, could be signed instead.
According to Graeme Bailey, Manchester City is one of the favourites to sign the Portugal international. Bernardo Silva has already said that he will also try to bring his fellow countryman to the Etihad Stadium.
Keep an eye on what’s going on at Manchester City this month. If Phillips goes, a new central midfielder is likely to join the team.
