After a high-profile transfer to Manchester City, Kalvin Phillips' career did not pan out as expected.

Following a disappointing loan spell, the English midfielder is now eyeing a move to Barcelona.

Manchester City paid £42 million for the English international, a lucrative deal for Leeds United. Phillips was a significant project for the Citizens, but his career at the Etihad Stadium has not gone as planned. This season, the young midfielder made just 10 appearances for City, prompting a January loan move to West Ham.

At West Ham, Phillips quickly found himself on the bench, raising doubts about his status in the England squad ahead of the European Championship in Germany.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, Phillips, with the help of his agents, has started lobbying for a transfer to Barcelona. Phillips believes that Blaugrana's style of play would suit him well, benefiting both him and the team. He had hoped to join Barcelona in January, but the club could not afford the transfer fee at that time.

Manchester City is reportedly willing to sell Phillips, but the buyer would need to pay at least €30 million for the midfielder. Phillips is determined to play for a Champions League club again, with his first choice being a move abroad.

Barcelona is aware of Phillips' determination, but they have other transfer priorities. Their primary target is Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich. Barcelona hopes to take advantage of the fact that Kimmich's contract expires in the summer of 2025, and he has yet to agree on an extension with the Bavarians.
