The battle between arch-rivals Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola continues into the summer break as both are after the same Leeds United midfielder.

Substitute for Monaco star: The star coaches Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have their eye on the same midfielder from Leeds United, as the “Mirror” reports: Kalvin Phillips (26 / market value 70 million euros). The Reds have so far been interested in signing Aurelien Tchouameni from AS Monaco. However, the 22-year-old Frenchman looks set to join Real Madrid this summer. Now Phillips is the focus.

Short, compact, clear

World Championship contender: Kalvin Phillips has continued to develop during his time at Elland Road. Phillips was called up to England’s squad for the 2020 UEFA European Championship last year and is among the candidates to fly to Qatar for the FIFA World Cup this summer. His association with Declan Rice at the Three Lions shows that he is too can get involved with the big ones, believes “The Kop Times”.

International business beckons: Leeds can’t claim to be a ‘big club’ at the moment, especially with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool in the mix. A move to either of these two clubs is practically a guarantee of European football and a chance to win championships.
