Manchester City has landed its next big-name signing of the summer, as Pep Guardiola and the Citizens have reached an agreement with Leeds United over the transfer of star midfielder Kalvin Phillips. The English international is set to join Manchester City for a fee worth £42 million ($51 million) as well as £3 million in future fees, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

It's a massive signing for Manchester City who have long been linked with a move for Phillips. The Leeds midfielder was one of the most sought-after transfer targets on the open market this summer, and Pep Guardiola and Man City have secured his signature despite competition from rivals including Manchester United.

Phillips is set to join new Manchester City players Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland at the Etihad this season, and Manchester City will likely look to secure a couple more deals before the window shuts later in the summer.

Phillips has spent his entire professional career at Leeds, having debuted for the club in England's second division back in 2014-15. He played a key role in their promotion to the Premier League a few years ago, and has helped them avoid relegation ever since. Last season, he featured in 20 games for Leeds in the Premier League, recording 18 starts. He's also made a total of 23 appearances for England at the national level.

Now, he'll be tasked with replacing Fernandinho at Manchester City with the 37-year-old expected to leave the club this summer. Guardiola will be ecstatic to have secured the signing of Phillips, who figures to dominate the midfield as one of the best defensive-minded midfielders in England.
