MAN CITY have reportedly set a price for disgraced Kalvin Phillips.
The 27-year-old former Leeds United star struggled for game time at the Etihad.
He was signed in 2022 for a fee of £42 million but failed to achieve the expected success.
That has sparked interest from rival clubs who believe they could take the midfielder away from the Champions League winners.
Newcastle United, Liverpool, Juventus and West Ham are all said to be eyeing Yorkshire Pirlo.
And now this Mirror claim that City are demanding a transfer fee of £50m when the transfer window opens in January.
Pep Guardiola’s side are hoping their rivals start a bidding war that could drive up the price.
They had previously accepted he could leave for £40million and the Hammers were reportedly keen to add him to their ranks.
But the player told City Chiefs he was ready to stay at the club and fight for his place in the first team.
Phillips has only made five starts in his 15 months at the club.
Three of his appearances this season have come for England but when he got his chance after Rodri was suspended he failed to impress Guardiola.

The report adds that Phillips is now ready to move on to ensure he remains in Gareth Southgate’s plans for next summer’s Euros.
Newcastle United are said to be frontrunners for his services, with the transfer fee not being an issue.
The Toon are also looking for reinforcements in midfield after Sandro Tonali was banned for ten months after admitting breaching betting rules.
