Kalvin Phillips will fight for his place next season.
The England midfielder has made only two starts for the Cityzens last season since his big money move last summer.
According to sources, he was accused of being overweight by manager Pep Guardiola and was not in the condition to train after returning from World Cup.
His injuries and Rodri’s exceptional form has derailed his opportunities in the first team.
But Phillips wants to continue at the Etihad and fight for his place under Guardiola.
“To be honest I was injured before I even went to City, so that is one of the main reasons why I was injured so much,” Phillips told reporters.
“City have been amazing to help me get back to full fitness and I eventually played a few more games for City and England, so credit to the medical staff at City for helping me.
“My intention is to stay there. We have just won the treble, so there is no reason for me to leave, other than if I am not playing I will obviously have to think about it.”
