How much are Man City paying the 27-year-old returning unfit from the World Cup?

Kalvin Phillips’ salary has become a frequently searched term after the overweight 27-year-old returned to Manchester City.

The England international has been called up in Gareth Southgate’s 26-man World Cup squad despite playing just 53 minutes of football in all competitions for Manchester City so far this season.

Pep Guardiola paid £45million to sign Phillips from Leeds back in July.

However, the Spaniard could hardly use his new No. 4 due to a shoulder injury.

So how much does Manchester City pay Phillips? Let’s take a look…

That’s according to Salary Sport.

Their website reveals that Phillips received a significant pay rise after signing a six-year deal with Manchester City as he was earning £38,000 a week in his final season at Leeds.

Those close to the Etihad Stadium know that Guardiola is no slouch when it comes to ensuring his players stay in shape.

As the Daily Mail reports, even Sergio Aguero – one of the best players in Manchester City history – was once dropped from the squad by the Spaniard after being 100g over his target weight.

Guardiola has now banned Phillips from training and will not allow him to return until he loses some fat.

The Yorkshire Pirlo – as Leeds fans call him for his superb passing ability – only made two appearances for England at the World Cup, both coming on as substitutes.

Phillips played 32 minutes in the 3-0 win over Wales, assisting Marcus Rashford to score the third and final goal.

The overweight Manchester City maestro then played eight minutes as England defeated Senegal again, 3-0, in the round of 16.

Hopefully Phillips can soon find himself back in Guardiola’s good books as he is too talented to spend his time on the touchlines at the Etihad Stadium.
