OPINION: Four Midfielders Man Utd Could Turn To After Kalvin Phillips Snub

Recently, according to a report in the Daily Star, England international Kalvin Phillips has stated that he is not interested in joining Manchester United in the upcoming summer transfer window.

After England's performance at Euro 2020, Manchester United has been tasked with signing Leeds star Kalvin Phillips.

The Leeds United midfielder is concerned about being subjected to a barrage of criticism from the Peacocks' supporters, much as former players who left the Elland Road for Old Trafford have expressed concern.

Following Phillips' rejection of a move to Manchester United, here are four other midfielders the Red Devils can turn to in the summer transfer window.

Aurelien Tchouameni


In the aftermath of his selection for the France national team, the young player has been dubbed "one of the best young midfielders in Europe."

As a result of his impressive performances for AS Monaco, big European teams such as Real Madrid and Chelsea have expressed an interest in signing the France international midfielder on a permanent basis.

After being linked with a move to Manchester United, Tchouameni could be a viable alternative to replace Phillips in the starting lineup.

Declan Rice

Rice is a second player who plays in the same position as Phillips. In the summer, Manchester United may make an attempt to sign him.

Despite the fact that he represents England at international level, the West Ham midfielder has established himself as one of the finest in the English Premier League over the years.

Despite reports linking the midfielder with a move to Manchester United, the Red Devils are facing a significant threat from his previous club Chelsea.

Wilfred Ndidi

The Nigerian international is regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe's top five divisions, with his statistics consistently ranking among the best in each season's competition.

It has been rumored for some time that the Nigerian international will be joining Manchester United, but the move has fallen through on multiple occasions.

United have the option of signing the Leicester City midfielder if they can secure the services of Phillips from Leeds United.

Marcelo Brozovic

The Inter Milan midfielder is one of the greatest possibilities available for Manchester United at the moment. Croat's contract with the Serie A champions will expire in the summer, which may be a fantastic deal for the Red Devils given the age of the player at 29.

Brozovic is a talented player who has proven himself over the course of his career in Serie A as well as on the international scene while representing Croatia.

If Manchester United were to replace Kalvin Phillips with one of these midfielders, who do you think they should choose?
