Kalvin Philips, an English midfielder, provided an explanation for his decision to sign with Manchester City just a few hours after completing his transfer to Etihad Stadium from Leeds United. After a poor showing with Leeds United in the previous campaign, the England international was able to secure a transfer to City.
And according to the Metro, Philips has stated that his primary motivation for joining Pep Guardiola's side Manchester City was his desire to want to improve as a player and be the best in the top flight, something that he saw could not happen in any other club. This is something that Philips believes could not happen in any other club.
Philips was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford after Paul Pogba left the club. However, Manchester City's newest signing made it clear that he doesn't have the heart to join Erik Ten Hag's side and claimed that joining them would be disrespectful to Leeds United fans.
Both Haaland, who will take over for Sergio Aguero, and Alvarez, another teenage striker, have already been signed by Manchester City. This brings the total number of players that Guardiola has brought in to four for the summer, and there is still time for him to make further acquisitions before the summer transfer window shuts.
Our job right now is to sit tight, see what unfolds over the next few days of the transfer window, and speculate about which player Manchester City will buy next.
