Leeds ace Kalvin Phillips has once again been linked to the Premier League rivals, Manchester United.

 

Leeds

midfielder

Kalvin Phillips

attracted many attentions after being voted as England's player of the tournament at Euro 2020.

The 25-year-old has been linked to

Manchester United

several times and the talks about his transfer to Old Trafford has resurfaced again in recent days, however, Leeds boss

Marcelo Bielsa

believes if the England international decides to leave the club, he will do it in a way that solidifies his link to the club.

"I'm sure the day he leaves Leeds and the way that he does it, far from provoking disappointment - of course it will generate disappointment - but it's going to solidify his link to the club, the people and the city,”

Bielsa said.

"I'm sure he would only leave if it's guaranteed that the link to the place where he was born remains intact. He will know how to do it."

He added:

"I have seen in him the conduct I have very rarely seen in a player.

"In how football is right now, for a player to decline a team above the level where he is at, due to the love of a club where he is at, is not frequent.

"I have the certainty Kalvin is going to enjoy for the rest of his life decisions like the one he made. He will be loved for always in the place he was born and where he belongs."
