West Ham flop has offered himself to Barcelona in a bid to replace a club legend.

When you think of pure defensive midfielders, there are very few in history who can even compare to Sergio Busquets. The Barcelona legend is perhaps the most criminally under-appreciated player in his position ever and really should be remembered as one of the greats.

Now that he’s left to join Lionel Messi in the MLS though, the Catalan club are in need of a replacement which is not an easy task. They need a leader, a man with real presence, someone who brings calmness and, overall, a brilliant player. With those parameters in mind, you’d be forgiven for not thinking instantly of Kalvin Phillips.

While on loan at West Ham, Phillips made his career even worse by costing the Hammers European football, swearing at a fan and, potentially, causing David Moyes to lose his job.

Despite this, the Manchester City midfielder believes he could do a job for one of the only clubs in the world bigger than City. According to Spanish news outlet Sport, he has offered himself to Barcelona, making them aware of his interest in playing for them.

You have to rate the desire but, at the same time, they’d be absolutely insane to sign him. It’s like Dagenham and Redbridge making Mbappe aware of how much they’d like to sign him. It’s just a laughable decision.

Phillips’ only hope is that the Spanish giants are in a lot of financial trouble and that may cause them to go for a cheap option. Even then, it’s hard to imagine them coming in for the Englishman, even if he was available for free.
