Guardiola Ready to Get Rid of Long-Time Juventus Target

Kalvin Phillips has been blatantly put on the market by Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola, and Juventus are waiting in the wings to assess whether they could snap him up for very advantageous conditions. The gaffer spoke on the matter in his latest presser (via Sky Sports).

“I don’t know what’s going to happen. I feel so sorry for my decision for him. He doesn’t deserve what has happened to him. The only thing I can say about him is I’m asking for good personalities and characters, and he’s a perfect example. And after that, I had to give him something, and I didn’t do that. It’s just because I visualize some things and the team, and I struggle to see him.”

Juventus have inquired about Phillips, but he’s not one of their top options because of his wages, characteristics, and the fact that he aims at a starring role to be a regular for England in Euro 2024, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs (via Tuttomercatoweb). There’ll be a meeting between the parties soon.

The midfielder is more likely to go to another Premier League side on loan. The Bianconeri are keeping tabs since their other targets are pretty challenging to sign.

Our Take on Juventus and Phillips

He wouldn’t be an ideal reinforcement technically speaking, as they require a more creative and offensive-minded player. However, arrival can’t be totally ruled out since he could join for relatively cheap and because they might not ultimately find what they are looking for.
