The Red Devils are reportedly concentrating their efforts on signing Leeds midfielder Kavin Philips after halting their long pursuit in West Ham's star Declan Rice.
Ole Gunner Solskjaer strengthened his squad in the summer transfer window, spending in excess of £130million on Raphael Varane, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Jadon Sancho. These highly prolific players have made Manchester United favorites to win the English Premier League title this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will next prioritize signing a top-class defensive midfielder, with West Ham and England star Rice, 22, the club’s primary target in this position for the last 12 to 18 months.
Declan Rice's market price had rocketed following his great display in 2020 Euro tournaments. This has forced The Red Devils to scour the market for cheaper alternatives and the report suggests that Kevin Phillips has made it to the top of their summer transfer wishlist.
Leeds United is demanding a fee of £60m for Kevin Philips who has been one of their greatest academy products. However, Manchester United faces stiff competition from their greatest Rivals Liverpool as the star has also been linked with a move to Anfield.
Phillips made his debut for his boyhood team seven years ago and has been integral to the club’s recent success. The England international contract with the club expires in 2024 after he signed a five-year deal in September 2019.
