    Kalvin Phillips will now discuss personal terms with Manchester City after the Premier League champions agreed an initial £42m deal with Leeds United for the England midfielder.

    The reaction is already positive from City fans on social media, with many seeing it as a great deal financially. They're also getting a player with a strong reputation and a great addition to the midfield after Fernandinho left the club this summer.

    There are £3m of add-ons with the deal too.

    In a separate deal, Manchester City academy player Darko Gyabi will be heading across the Pennines to Elland Road for £5m.

    Manchester City defender Luke Mbete has signed a three-year contract extension with the Blues to keep him at Etihad Stadium until 2027.

    The 18-year-old made his first-team debut last season in the Carabao Cup against Wycombe, with further appearances in the FA Cup and Champions League.

    Another member of the successful academy at Manchester City, Mbete helped the Premier League 2 side to win the title.

    "This is a great moment, not just for myself but also for my family," he said. "I am very grateful the club has put their faith and trust in me.

    "I feel like there is so much more to come and I feel like I have got a lot more to show and prove as well."

    It's my understanding there are no current plans for him to leave the club on loan and he will stay with the first team for pre-season.

  5. Selling players to Premier League rivals 'could come back to bite' Citypublished at 11:06 24 June

    Manchester City last sold a player to a big-six club in 2012, but could lose two in one transfer window this summer.

    Raheem Sterling has been linked with a move to Chelsea, while there are rumours Bernardo Silva could join Arsenal.

    French football expert Julien Laurens says it is a risk worth taking for City because of the finances involved.

    He told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast: "It’s contractual situations considering they both only have one year left on the contract.

    "You can extend them, but with Haaland coming you feel like it is a good time to sell them and get some money.

    "You know that if you sell to another top-six English club it could come back to bite you when you play against them in the Premier League, but they have more money than anyone else in Europe, they offer more wages than anybody else in Europe, so you’ve got more chances to do good deals with Arsenal and Chelsea than a Real Madrid or a Barcelona or a Bayern Munich or PSG.

    "That’s why I think right now they are in contact with English clubs to sell Sterling and Jesus."

  7. A Chelsea move? Or a City stay?published at 13:54 23 June

    Simon Stone, BBC Sport

    The alternative to a move for Raheem Sterling is to remain where he is, which raises one of two options.

    The first is to try to negotiate a new deal with Manchester City. Sterling is already very well paid due to the contract he signed in 2018 and the club's willingness to engage will be an indication of how much Pep Guardiola wants him around.

    The other option is to let his contract run out, which would see him become one of the most sought-after free transfers of 2023, when the lack of a fee will automatically drive his wage up.

    As he continues on his post-season break - and thinks ahead to the start of a new campaign - Sterling has a lot to mull over.

    One thing is for certain, whatever path he chooses, it will be big news.

  11. Could Phillips be Rodri's understudy at Man City?published at 15:54 21 June

    Phil Dawkes, BBC Sport

    On a purely practical level, it is clear to see why Manchester City are looking to sign Kalvin Phillips. He is a midfield replacement for Fernandinho, who ended his glittering nine-year spell at the club this summer.

    He is likely to slot in behind Rodri in the pecking order for the single defensive midfield position favoured by Pep Guardiola.

    It is a role Phillips knows well from his time at Leeds, especially in the past four years spent largely under the management of Marcelo Bielsa.

    Phillips was arguably Leeds' key player under their former boss - a shield in front of the defence but also the pass-providing quarter-back through which the team would transition into attack.

    That Phillips was moulded by Bielsa will only make him more appealing to Guardiola, who cites the Argentine as an inspiration and with whom he shares a similar possession-focused, attack-minded philosophy.

    Should Guardiola need him to operate in another midfield role higher up the pitch, Phillips has demonstrated his ability to do so with England, as part of a successful double pivot with Declan Rice.

    In contrast to his time at Leeds, Phillips is unlikely to be first choice at City, with Rodri firmly established as Guardiola's go-to man in the middle of the field.

    City play plenty of games a season (57 in 2021-22), so Phillips' chances will come, but the move still presents a risk for the player in a year that ends with the World Cup and his England place not a certainty.

    He ranks in the 95th percentile for tackles and tackles won among Premier League midfielders and in the 97th percentile for pressures applied to an opponent and how successful he is with these.

    There is still much room for improvement if he is to match up to Rodri in his distribution and attacking skills, with the latter vastly superior in his pass completion and contribution to creating chances.

    Some caution should be shown in too close a comparison, though. The sides they played in last season had very different ambitions - City were competing for the title; Leeds were fighting for survival.

  12. 'Good chance' Sterling will join Chelseapublished at 15:52 21 June

    There is a chance Raheem Sterling could join Chelsea this summer, though no official bid has been made yet according to the Athletic's David Ornstein.

    With Sterling's City future is in doubt as he enters the final 12 months of his contract, Chelsea are targeting the winger as their major summer signing.

    When asked how realistic the move is, Ornstein told BBC Radio 5 Live: "It’s a very good possibility.

    "He’s only got a year to go on his Manchester City contract and Chelsea are among a small number of elite clubs who are interested in him, that’s for sure, and that he would also be interested in potentially joining.

    "I reported about a month ago that he would be making his decision after England’s Nations League matches. They are out of the way now so it’s crunch time. We’ve got to see what offers Manchester City receive, because Chelsea aren’t yet in direct negotiations and an official bid has not been placed.

    "If you speak to some people around this situation and good sources, they think there is a good chance of it happening but it’s not done and dusted and he will heavily consider those other options."

  13. Chelsea move for Sterling would be 'statement signing'published at 11:24 21 June

    Raheem Sterling would be "a statement signing" for Chelsea if they succeed in prising him away from Manchester City.

    That's the view of former Everton and West Ham midfielder Don Hutchison after the 27-year-old emerged as a summer target for Thomas Tuchel..

    "I think he is a really underrated player," Hutchison told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast.

    "He has a lot of tools in his armoury, is an amazing talent and is at the right age. He's got better as he's got older and I think he would be a statement signing."

    Football journalist Luke Edwards agreed, although expressed his disappointment that Sterling is now unlikely to move abroad.

    "I think this is a transfer a year in the making," he said. "But he did flirt heavily with Real Madrid and I thought he would go to La Liga for the lifestyle and career choice.

    "That would have completed his career."

  14. Guardiola hopes to keep Silva despite Barcelona interestpublished at 07:49 21 June

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he wants midfielder Bernardo Silva to stay with the Premier League champions but added he does not like to keep "unhappy" players.

    Silva, 27, was one of City's best performers last season but the Portugal international has been linked with a move to Barcelona.

    "With two clubs like Barcelona and Manchester City, the names we talk about are varied. There's a lot of them," said Guardiola.

    "You've got people like Joan Laporta, who are great with tactics.

    "Right now, I think Bernardo Silva will continue with us but it's true he could be in Barcelona.

    "I don't know what's going to happen but for me, our intentions are to keep him with us."

    Sergio Aguero has revealed he had to tell his team-mates to leave him alone after scoring arguably the Premier League's most famous goal to win the title against QPR in 2012.

    Speaking to the club's official website, Aguero said his memories of the moment are a blur.

    "Following the goal, I was so happy, but I was sort of in shock," he told the club's website., external

    "I don't remember anything immediately after, but when it sank in, I realised I'd scored the best goal of my life.

    "My team-mates jumped on me and they were all saying, 'I love you Sergio, I love you!'

    “I had to tell them, 'leave me alone', because I was in shock at that moment, but the celebration was still good!"

    Aguero has countless fond memories of his time at City but also highlighted the season-ending 4-1 win at Brighton in 2018-19 that finally held off Liverpool the race for the league.

    "It was different from 2011/12, but I love that game against Brighton," he said.

    "Because I scored many goals that year, I felt I played my part and the celebrations at the end were fantastic."
