Manchester United urged to sign Kalvin Phillips by fan-favourite

Manchester United have already announced that an agreement has been reached for the transfer of Jadon Sancho but the club have been urged by Dimitar Berbatov to make a move for another England player.

England’s route to Sunday’s final has highlighted the quality in central midfield, with Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips emerging as a shock starter for Gareth Southgate’s side.

Phillips was widely praised for his performance in England’s opening win against Croatia and has kept his place in the side, starting all of their six games.

Manchester United have now been urged to make a move for the midfielder, with former fan-favourite Dimitar Berbatov saying he would like to see the club go after him.

“Kalvin Phillips stood out again too (against Denmark). He’s been one of the players of the tournament and, sooner or later, I expect him to leave Leeds for a bigger club. I would like to see him sign for Manchester United,” Berbatov told Betfair, as quoted by Football365.

Manchester United are said to be targeting a midfielder this summer but the focus seems to be on acquiring Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, with some reports claiming that the club is ‘really serious’ about signing the 18-year-old.

Camavinga has just one year remaining on his contract at Rennes and despite links to Real Madrid in recent years, it seems as though Manchester United are getting ready to make a move.

    Rather Rice or Grelish if we were to consider being in anyone from the England set up

      First, it’s ‘Grealish’ (and ‘bring’). Second, Phillips would rather chew his own bollocks off than sign for you. Third, what makes you think either of the other two want to play for you anyway? Your Prem Bertie Big Bollocks days went out the window with Fergie.
