The fight in the transfer window has been complicated for Manchester United, as they lost another important signing, this time to their "noisy neighbors".

Ten Hag must move quickly in the transfer window.

The Premier League market began intensely, with the signings of Erling Haaland and Darwin Núñez it seemed that the major deals were done, but Manchester City continues with its wallet in hand looking for reinforcements and has just taken one from its neighbor.

Yet another signing that escapes the Red Devils, and worse, this time it was made by their eternal rivals and at a great price. As reported by The Athletic in the UK, Manchester City has reached an agreement with Leeds United for the signing of Kalvin Phillips.

The transfer figure, according to journalist David Ornstein, is just over 52 million euros, with some variables ranging from 3.5 million euros extra, a great market price for one of the best English footballers today.

Let's remember that the Citizens have paid astronomical sums when they have acquired English stars, Kyle Walker (52.70 million), John Stones (55.60 million), Raheem Sterling (63.70 million) and Jack Grealish (117.50 million), are the English players who exceed the figure that City agreed with Leeds for Kalvin Phillips.

United's lack of action is taking a toll on the squad

For Manchester United, this is another blow in the market, after having lost the duel with Liverpool for Darwin Núñez and now losing one of the stars of the English national team, it is a symptom of what is expected to happen in the next edition of the Premier League. This is possibly adding frustration to the United players, especially in Cristiano Ronaldo.
