Pep's Next Man City Signing 'Confirmed'
Pep Guardiola is closing in on his third signing for the 2022/23 season, with Manchester City having agreed personal terms with the player and a transfer fee with the selling club.

The Premier League champions have reportedly struck an agreement with Leeds United to sign England international Kalvin Phillips. According to football transfer expert David Ornstein, the 26-year-old will cost City around £42 million (R814 million) up front, though that figure is expected to rise with add-ons. 

The midfielder, who impressed for the Three Lions at the recent UEFA European Championship, is set to become City's third new arrival ahead of the coming campaign after the signings of Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland.

Phillips has made 233 senior appearances for his boyhood club since breaking through in 2015, and reportedly turned down several offers from other clubs so he could work under Guardiola.
