City set a release price for Calvin Phillips, aim to earn more than they spent on the Englishman

Calvin Phillips will leave Manchester City in the January transfer window as he is not in Pep Guardiola’s plans.

The English midfielder joined the reigning champions of England with much fanfare, but he has not managed to leave a mark as he is not preferred by coach Pep Guardiola who has informed him that he needs to find a new team.

City has put the player up for sale and has already set a release price.

The reigning European champions aim to earn 57 million euros from the sale of Phillips, eight more than they paid for his transfer from Leeds.

Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Juventus, Everton and Fulham are the four teams that have expressed interest in his transfer.

The 27-year-old has agreed to leave City and his agents are now in talks with other clubs.

Phillips this season has played in six games in all competitions, while he has only 168 minutes of playing time on his feet, being framed mainly by the reserve bench.
