Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions this week officially announced the arrival of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

They have now turned their attention to securing the services of the England star and want that to be completed before they head to America for next month’s pre-season tour.

Phillips has been on international duty since helping Leeds survive in the top flight but has now left for his summer holidays after yesterday’s 4-0 Nations League defeat by Hungary.

As Sun Sport reported last week, City will now officially approach Leeds after retiring from England.

And now Football Insider has claimed that the Elland Road Academy graduate has told his youth club he wants to sign for City.

A transfer fee of around £50million is widely believed to be enough to secure a deal on the deal.

However, Phillips has two years left on his contract at Leeds.

And they could potentially force him to watch the rest – or at least one more season.

However, if these recent reports are true, it seems an unlikely option.

Boss Guardiola is looking for a replacement for veteran Fernandinho after the Brazilian left after nine years at Etihad.

Guardiola and City sporting director Txiki Begiristain consider him “ideal” for them and have sent scouts to him on several occasions this season.

Manchester United also want the ace – but Phillips has reportedly told his nearest and dearest that he cannot move to Old Trafford due to the bitter rivalry between them and his boyhood club Leeds.
