Chelsea join Manchester United in Kalvin Phillips race

Chelsea have joined Manchester City and Manchester United in the race to sign Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips. 

Speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside, Fabrizio Romano confirmed both Manchester clubs are interested in signing Phillips this summer, and the England international could be tempted to leave if the right offer comes in.

Now, according to Chelsea News, Chelsea are now also interested in signing Phillips, as they begin their summer spending following their recent takeover.

With Jorginho and N’Golo Kante both out of contract next summer, the pair could be moved on in this transfer window to avoid them leaving on a free transfer. Phillips would be a cheaper alternative to Declan Rice and could be Chelsea’s midfielder for years to come due to his age.

Kalvin Phillips has emerged as one of England’s best midfielders.
