Preferred Fernandinho Replacement at Manchester City

Preferred Fernandinho Replacement at Manchester City as the Brazilian is set to see out the Remainder of his Career in Brazil.

Kalvin Phillips tops the list of preferred Fernandinho replacement at Manchester City.

According to the Daily Mail, City have Leeds United midfielder, Kalvin Phillips, as their preferred man to replace Fernandinho.

 After nine years at the Etihad, the Brazilian international said his farewells to the Citizens on Monday at the club’s Premier League trophy parade.

Fernandinho’s quality, professionalism, and versatility has seen him win 12 trophies in his time at the club.

Although Phillips has been linked with a switch from Leeds, the 26-year-old could be seen as a backup option to Pep Guardiola’s trusted first-choice defensive midfielder, Rodri.

Phillips has been recognized as having the ideal profile for the squad, according to the reputable Daily Mail football correspondent Gaughan, and City is anticipated to pursue him in the coming weeks.

Phillips was used as a lone defensive midfielder under previous Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.

It had previously been believed that relegation for the Yorkshire club would have seen Phillips on the market for around £30 million – however, following Jesse Marsch’s side’s remarkable Premier League survival on the final day, the sum for Phillips is expected to be high.

City’s attacking options have already been bolstered for the coming season, with Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez joining the squad ahead of pre-season.

Tottenham and Arsenal have both expressed interest in signing Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling, who have been linked with a move away from the club.
