Manchester United have long planned to upgrade the midfield with a quality midfielder, so they entered the winter transfer window with a series of rumors swirling around. But in the end, so far, coach Ralf Rangnick has not welcomed any new recruits even though the transfer market is about to close.
As revealed by the Daily Mail, the Old Trafford team has put Kevin Phillips in the spotlight. Not only the Red Devils, but many other big teams like Liverpool and Real Madrid also have plans to acquire this star. However, it is not expected that any club will win the race to signature of Phillips.
Specifically, also according to the Daily Mail, Leeds United has absolutely no intention of parting with the English midfielder . Understandably, because Phillips still plays an ‘irreplaceable’ role in Leeds’ squad this season. However, this team also knows that they will face a lot of difficulties if they want to keep Phillips in the summer transfer window.
On the Man Utd side, besides Phillips, they also target another top defensive midfielder, Declan Rice. However, the West Ham United side also has no plans to part with this star, unless the Red Devils accept to spend a huge number. Many sources confirmed that the fee that The Hammers demanded was more than 100 million pounds.
