Manchester United pursuing Kalvin Phillips


Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Manchester United.

The England international has spent his entire professional career at Elland Road, making a total of 218 appearances in all competitions.

However, the 25-year-old's appearances for the Three Lions during Euro 2020 put him on the radar of several top clubs, including Premier League champions Manchester City.

According to the Daily Star, United are also prepared to make an approach for Phillips at the end of the current campaign.

The report suggests that United will end their interest in West Ham United's Declan Rice to prioritise the signing of his midfield partner in the national team.

While club officials are allegedly against paying in excess of £90m for Rice, Leeds are likely to demand a similar fee for Phillips.
