Juventus on Kalvin Phillips 

Juventus is carefully considering the names available for winter reinforcement in midfield, in view of the absence of the disqualified Pogba and Fagioli. Among the various profiles already approached by the Bianconeri team, such as Hojbjerg and Koopemeiners, the one most discussed è certainly that of Kalvin Phillips. However, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph, the English midfielder seems to have some doubts about the degree of centrality of his role in Max Allegri’s project.

In fact, the formula proposed by Juventus to Manchester City, namely loan with right of redemption and coverage of part of the signing by the Cityzens, may not represent a total investment in the player in the short term. Phillips, who is eager to play more in order not to lose ground in coach Southgate’s hierarchies toward Euro 2024, requires adequate guarantees in this regard.

In the event that these do not manifest themselves, the alternative could be Newcastle&#39s proposal, although City would probably prefer to sell him to a foreign team rather than a domestic rival, at least should they opt for a permanent transfer to recoup some of the €50 million spent on his purchase from Leeds last year. In any case, Juventus is carefully considering its options to make the best possible purchase.
