It has been reported that Manchester City are intending to send Kalvin Phillips on loan this summer.

This comes from journalist Alan Nixon on Patreon, as the £42 million (The Athletic) man’s future is seemingly still up in the air.

Now, it seems like Manchester City have decided to loan Kalvin Phillips out.

Journalist: Manchester City aim to send Kalvin Phillips on loan

Branded as ‘intelligent’ by Pep Guardiola, the Englishman’s move to the Etihad Stadium has not gone to plan to say the least.

In fact, it was reported nearly two weeks ago that Guardiola and his coaches were ‘surprised by his struggles’ and feared that he may fail to match the levels of the rest of his teammates.

Now, it has been revealed that Manchester City intend to send Kalvin Phillips on loan in order to ensure that he gets his career back on track.

The treble-winners internally believe that can manage without Phillips, as they hope that he reinvents himself elsewhere.

It has also been claimed that Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips has been offered to several clubs in the Premier League, while he may be of interest to certain teams across Europe.

While Liverpool have been linked with the 27-year-old’s signature, they seem to believe that they have enough cover in the defensive midfield area.

Manchester City should try to sell him on a permanent basis

Considering Manchester City seem to be looking for suitors to sign the ex-Leeds United lynchpin on loan, they may well have lost their faith in the chances of him redeeming himself.

Often, new arrivals tend to undergo an adaptation period during their debut seasons and in the following campaigns, said players hit unseen heights.

But if City themselves do not believe the Englishman is capable of doing so, it may be wiser for them to part ways with him for good.

With Kalvin Phillips in his prime years, having thrived for club and country in the past, there is no reason to be doubtful of the fact that he will have his fair share of suitors.
