A review of Calvin Phillips showing off his talent in midfield proves the 26-year-old is fit for Manchester City.

On Friday night, hundreds of news were published that City was close to signing the Leeds United star in a 50 million euro deal.

The reigning champion had identified Phillips as the main target this summer and has decided to pay 50 million euros, with an additional 3 million euros.

In a separate transfer, City’s 18-year-old midfielder, Darko Gyabi, is going in the opposite direction for a fee of 5 million euros.

Phillips, who is expected to join his new club for the pre-season, will become City’s second signing this summer and will follow the big transfer of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

An 8-minute video of his best pieces on YouTube has garnered just under 40,000 views and shows exactly what Phillips will bring to City.

He has a tough task to score a starting point as the deepest midfielder after Rodri’s phenomenal season for the champions, but Phillips seems to have all the attributes to excel in the City-based approach.
