Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips is said to be wanted by Manchester United in the Daily Star.

They claim that the Red Devils are keen on the Leeds enforcer, after turning their attentions to signing him rather than Declan Rice. 

Any transfer looks hugely unlikely, given the rivalry between the two sides.

But the report does claim that Phillips is starting to be concerned that Marcelo Bielsa could quit Leeds at the end of the season.

Bielsa’s future as Elland Road is never entirely certain, as he only commits to penning one-year contract extensions.

Bielsa has always insisted that he is happy at Leeds and that he could spend the rest of his career with the Yorkshire club.

But he typically doesn’t spend huge amounts of time in just one job and he is now entering his fourth season at Leeds.

An unlikely transfer

That all being said, it would be a major disaster if Leeds were to sell their star man to Manchester United.

Phillips is sure to attract attention, especially if Leeds don’t improve on their current results, given his profile and level of ability.

However, the Whites will be desperate not to lose another one of their top talents to a rival.

It would also be a shock of Phillips was open to a move, given his loyalty to Leeds and standing with their supporters.
