Jones Confident of United Future
The confirmation that the Swedish international centre-back Victor Lindelof has signed a deal with Manchester United has, once again, opened up concerns about the Old Trafford future of Phil Jones.
With Jose Mourinho surely set to opt for a centre-back pairing of Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof, Jones` place in the squad could, like that of Chris Smalling, be at risk.
However, Phil doesn`t believe his Old Trafford future is at risk.
Talking to the media, and reproduced in the sports pages of The Sun, are some comments attributed to the 25-year-old, comments that read,
"I have spoken to the manager. It was a normal conversation - he is a good man-manager.
"But we are Manchester United and we are going to attract the big and the best players.
"It`d be a strange summer if we weren`t. Competition is always good and I am looking forward to pre-season."
Could the fact that Jones is a versatile player able to play at centre-back, full-back and in midfield (if required) be his saving grace?
