Bayern Munich are reportedly considering a move for Manchester City midfielder Calvin Phillips in the January transfer window.
The England midfielder was given an opportunity to prove himself against Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup by Pep Guardiola in Rodri’s absence, but he failed to make the most of it, failing to impress the Spanish coach.
Philipps has played just 70 minutes in the Premier League so far this season and all from the bench, a clear indication that he is not in the manager’s plans and a January move is very likely.
According to The Sun, Bayern are monitoring his situation closely and could make a move for him in the winter or next summer.
Thomas Tuchel believes he can recapture the best version of the player and has therefore pushed hard for a loan deal to be struck in the January transfer window, just as they did with Joao Cancelo last winter.
City had informed the Englishman that they were willing to let him move in the summer, but the player insisted on staying at the Etihad to fight for a place in the squad.
With the player aiming to get more minutes on his feet in order to be part of England’s squad for EURO 2024, a move to Bayern Munich could be imminent, just in case his current situation at City takes an unexpected turn.
