It regards him as the first choice for midfield signings and hopes to sign him next summer.
In addition, the new investors hope that Manchester United will focus on introducing and developing English players. Phillips is still one of the best English players in the Premier League. Judging from the current situation, Guardiola should not prevent Phillips from leaving the team. The latter’s performance after joining Manchester City was not as good as expected. Guardiola hopes to find a solution for him as soon as possible.
The midfielder is still a position that Manchester United needs to strengthen. Amrabat has performed well since joining on loan, but he is not regarded as a long-term candidate.
