Leeds United contract saga with Kalvin Phillips sees club circle

Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester United have all asked to sign Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips, according to the Daily Mirror.

The newspaper reported in its print edition (February 07) that all three are in circles as Yorkshire Pirlo seek a new contract at Elland Road.

It is suggested that Phillips is more keen than ever to put pen to paper on a new deal and is desperate to secure better terms.

It’s inevitable.

All three clubs have been mentioned as those keen to move Phillips away from West Yorkshire at some point.

With them now in contact with the 26-year-old, it looks like these new contract developments are starting to affect his future.

Manchester United and Liverpool can easily watch Phillips every week in the Premier League, but EUROs have certainly carried his name across Europe and all the way to Madrid.

Do it.

Andrea Radrizzani cannot afford to let this drag on any longer.

It’s inconceivable that the owners couldn’t go out of their way to get Phillips to sign on the dotted line, but the latest updates seem to suggest he’s more than happy to do so.

So what’s holding it back?

Phillips deserves to be among Elland Road’s top earners, and Radrizzani and the 49ers need to find the money.

There are no more excuses now, and that contract, with Raphinha, must be signed and sealed imminently.

We didn’t spend a penny in January, it’s time to put that remaining cash to good use by pinning Phillips and Raphinha – do it.
