I mean, I can’t blame them for trying, but I’d be amazed to see this happen.
First off, part of it is dependent on us making European football, which as much as I’d like it to happen, there’s still a long way to go on that front. Secondly, I think that Leeds United are likely to go up, so that would just make things a lot more difficult to tempt him away.
Nevertheless, it looks as if Chris Wilder has continued in his plans for next season by putting Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips on his wish list for next season. A report in The Sun states that the Blades would need to fork out more than £20m for his services, although given that he has a release clause in his contract just north of that amount, that should take away some of the negotiating if and when the deal comes to the forefront, and that’s a mighty big if.
Would you want us to bring in Phillips?
However, if you ask these Blades fans, it would seem as though there aren’t many that would actually be interested in bringing him in. Indeed, most of them don’t seem to think he’d make it into their starting eleven.
Nah rather spend the cash on a striker

Berge is the one for CDM

Our Midfield is already stacked. Phillips would cause even more problems. Quality player like, would love to see him in Red and White

Why would we need him? Just signed berge

Mad to think if we did sign him our midfield would be Norwood, Fleck and Berge

I guess that’s a hard no in the eyes of these fans.
