The Man City player, who has seen limited action this season with only eight appearances across all competitions, is reportedly considering a move that could rejuvenate his career.
Due to his minimal playing time, there have been rumors linking Phillips with a departure from the Etihad Stadium.
Calcio Mercato suggests that Juventus might serve as a potential escape route for the Englishman. According to the outlet, a loan move in the upcoming January window could be a mutually beneficial option.
A permanent transfer seems unlikely, given the reported complications arising from Phillips’ salary and price tag, which may pose challenges for the Serie A giants.
Time is of the essence for Juventus, as Newcastle is reportedly at the forefront of clubs expressing interest in the 27-year-old.
Pep Guardiola has previously emphasized his willingness to facilitate the departure of players like Phillips if it aligns with the interests of all parties involved.
He stated that blocking transfers is not something big clubs do, as decisions are made for the benefit of players, both clubs, and sometimes, agents.
Newcastle is actively seeking to bolster its midfield in the New Year, particularly to cover for Sandro Tonali, who is currently serving a ten-month ban for illegal betting.
In addition to Phillips, the Magpies have been linked with a move for former Wolves player Ruben Neves, now playing in Saudi Arabia with Al-Hilal. However, potential hindrances to this move include Premier League clubs proposing a ban on loans between teams with the same owners.
This season he played in total 4 times for 89 minutes for Premier League.
Kalvin Phillips didn’t score any goal for Manchester City. He procured no assists. He received no yellow cards and no red cards.
