Alan Shearer has said that if Matheus Nunes joins Manchester City, Kalvin Phillips could now sign for Liverpool.

Speaking on The Rest Is Football, the popular pundit gave his two cents on the £42 million (The Athletic) man’s future at the Etihad Stadium.

Alan Shearer believes that if Matheus Nunes becomes a Manchester City player, Kalvin Phillips could end up at Liverpool.

Alan Shearer predicts Kalvin Phillips to Liverpool transfer if Matheus Nunes signs for Manchester City

Branded as ‘intelligent’ by Pep Guardiola, the Englishman has had a forgettable time in sky blue, despite having won the treble in his debut season.

Starting a mere two Premier League games in the previous campaign and having played zero minutes in the first three matches, it is clear to see that the former Leeds United midfielder is yet to earn Pep Guardiola’s trust.

Now, Alan Shearer believes that Manchester City would be willing to sell Kalvin Phillips to Liverpool, provided they sign Matheus Nunes.

“Do you think that because Man City are trying to sign [Matheus] Nunes from Wolves that means Kalvin Phillips is going to go somewhere, possibly Liverpool?”

“Only I mentioned that, Micah [Richards] because you mentioned signings, I think that’s one that could happen if City get him from Wolves, then that would free up Kalvin Phillips to go somewhere.”

Seems unlikely that Kalvin Phillips signs for Jurgen Klopp’s side

First things first, it was revealed last Monday that Liverpool are not eyeing a move for Kalvin Phillips as they are happy with their current defensive midfield options which pours cold water on Alan Shearer’s theory.

Furthermore, it has been quite well reported that the 27-year-old intends to stay and fight for his place at City.

With these factors in place, Phillips could well stay persistent and try to become a regular first-team member in sky blue after all instead of potentially even starting for Liverpool, if they do express any interest, that is.
