English football champion Manchester City has agreed with the leadership of Leeds United on the transfer of midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
According to the British media, “Citizens” will pay £ 45 million for the English representative – 42 million for the transfer, plus Leeds can earn another three million in bonuses.
The transfer is not yet complete, Phillips has yet to agree with the reigning Premier League champion on the terms of the contract, according to AFP.
Coach Pep Guardiola chose Phillips to fill the hole in the reserve after the departure of Brazilian Fernandinho. For the City, it is the second big summer reinforcement after the arrival of the Norwegian striker Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
The 26-year-old midfielder has been with Leeds United since his youth and played an important role in the team’s promotion to the Premier League two years ago. With his performances, he also asked for an invitation to the English national team, which he helped to advance to the European Championships last year. He has 23 starts for the national team.
