Real Madrid to scout Leeds star Kalvin Phillips after EUROs masterclass
Real Madrid are set to scout Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips at the EUROs, according to Defensa Central.
The Spanish outlet has claimed that Carlo Ancelotti was left impressed by the Yorkshire Pirlo after he spoiled Luka Modric’s game at Wembley.
It is suggested that Phillips will only cost £25.7million, but his value could soar with more brilliant performances this summer.
Phillips was immense in the 1-0 win against Croatia yesterday, setting up the winner for Raheem Sterling.
Everyone had the Yorkshire Pirlo’s name on their lips, and social media was packed with glowing tributes.
It has been reported that it would be no surprise if Leeds line up without Phillips in their first Premier League clash next season.
Despite the huge name of Real Madrid, this link is simply laughable.
Claiming that Phillips would only cost £25million is embarrassing, and he could be worth even more than double that if he continues to shine at the EUROs.
Having embarrassed Modric, who is considered one of the best midfielders of this century, it is no surprise to see links like this arise.
Marcelo Bielsa has built his squad around Phillips at Elland Road, and there would be no fee that makes it worthwhile selling him, he still has a huge role to play in West Yorkshire.
Phillips is a future captain at Elland Road, and it may be worthwhile sitting him down for more contract talks once he comes back from the major tournament, he’s ours to keep.
