Phillips is no world beater right now but he has talent, can improve, and no better place. City have Rodri who is the best DMC in the business, or one of, so City won’t be getting a ready made world class DMC at 400k a week.
Kalvin Phillips is the similar age as when we signed Fabian Delph although Delph was a more established Premier League player. Delph did make a good contribution during his time but it wasn't in his natural postition when Pep manged him. There is no reason Phillips why can't replicate what Delph had achieved however it won't be a significant improvement and might not be in his natural position.

Also, Phillips top level, shown last season and at the Euros was at a higher level than Delph showed at Villa. People needs to chill on the expectation. Cucu and Phillips for 50-70m is top level transfers.

Listen if PSG need to clear out any players to make room for this Mbappe deal we could help out and take Veratti off their hands ;)
PSG doesn't need to clear anything. They have our levels of financial powers. They have so many shit players to offload before even looking at Verratti ( Who looks to be extending). Like Icardi, Wijnaldum, Draxler etc.

I am all in on Cucurella, hesitant on Phillips but trust others who know more than me. Regardless those 2 + Haaland and Alvarez for a roughly 100m outlay would be insanely good business.
Just curious... Why are you hesitant on Phillips for 25-35m?

Phillips had a decent first season but not a so good second.
