Man City outcast’s demand gives Juventus advantage over Newcastle in Kalvin Phillips transfer saga

Kalvin Phillips’ future in the transfer market has taken a new turn, with his latest demand potentially giving Juventus the upper hand in the race to sign the Manchester City midfielder. The Italian giants, alongside Newcastle, are in the running to secure the 28-year-old’s services, but Phillips’ insistence on guaranteed playing time has seemingly put Juventus ahead. As Phillips aims to secure a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the Euros, his desire for regular minutes has highlighted Juventus as the frontrunners to land the talented midfielder. With talks already underway between Juventus and City, it looks like Phillips could be making a move to Italy in pursuit of the playing time he craves.

Juventus gain upper hand in race to sign Kalvin Phillips as transfer demand gives them advantage

Juventus have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Manchester City’s Kalvin Phillips, with Newcastle also in the running for the midfielder’s signature. However, the Italian giants have gained an advantage over their Premier League counterparts after Phillips demanded guaranteed playing time before making a decision on his future.

According to reports, Phillips is keen to secure regular minutes in order to strengthen his position in Gareth Southgate’s England squad ahead of the Euros. This has put Juventus ahead in the race for the 28-year-old, who is looking to leave Manchester City due to a lack of playing time under Pep Guardiola.

With long-term suspensions to Nicolo Fagioli and Paul Pogba, Juventus are in urgent need of a midfielder, making Phillips an attractive target for the Serie A side. Talks have already been opened with City over a potential deal, with Phillips reportedly open to the move.

Newcastle, on the other hand, are also in need of midfield reinforcements, but Juventus’ advantage in the race to sign Phillips has put them in a strong position to secure the player’s services. The Old Lady are eyeing an initial loan deal with an option to buy Phillips in the summer, presenting an attractive offer for both the player and his current club.

Phillips’ struggle for consistent action at Manchester City has prompted his desire to seek playing time elsewhere, and Juventus are now in pole position to secure his signature amid their own midfield woes.
