Kalvin Philips will be a hot topic in Manchester in the next few weeks and already there are some destinations on the horizon for him.
Massimiliano Allegri insists for him at Juventus as sees the player as an excellent alternative for the midfield. Juventus sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has moved to make this operation possible and bring the player to Turin.
According to various sources including La Gazzetta dello Sport the Italian Club has begun the negotiations that underground promise success in January.
The operation will happen in January and both clubs will conclude the loan with the option to buy. The player is enjoying the bench at Manchester City and this is not an acceptable scenario for the Yorkshireman.
Juventus are forced to give Faggioli and Polomine Pogba, both suspended, and are trying to get a good alternative in the market.
Juventus is hoping to fulfill other objectives in the January transfer window with Lazar Samardzic being closed to the team, they hope for a quick operation for Kalvin also. The club is keen on Rodrigo de Paul of Atletico Madrid and Pierre Emille Hojbjerg but these two players seem to be concentrated on their clubs.
His relationship with Manchester City
Josep Guardiola is considering him a second option and this is not seen as a situation where the player can explore or work.
But Manchester City hardly will accept the idea of loaning and will strive for a final sale as they fear any possible return in 2024. The budget that Juventus has to spend in the transfer window of €200 million makes this transfer possible.
With Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma heading in the Africa Cup of Nations, Ange Postecouglou will need another midfielder to fill the gap.
Yardbarker reports that the player could be on his way to Tottenham, but as it stands no concrete negotiations are taking place. Next weeks will be decisive as the player will have all the possible time to think about his future.
