25-year-old wants to play for Man United next season, Mourinho keen on him

Having already landed Victor Lindelof over the course of the summer so far, the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting another major overhaul by Jose Mourinho. 

With many of our resident Red Devils simply hell-bent on challenging for the Premier League title once again, they’re eager to see the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ continue to ring the changes at Old Trafford.

Whoever the Portuguese opts to sell will invariably have just as big an impact on the complexion of the squad as who he brings in, though reports from ESPN centre around one star he is planning on keeping.

They claim there are no plans to sell England international Phil Jones this summer, after he impressed during his partnership with Marcos Rojo last term. The 25-year-old hasn’t always convinced since arriving from Blackburn Rovers, though played his way back into the England squad towards the back end of last season.

Mourinho is understood to want a big squad at the Theatre of Dreams in order to compete on all fronts next season and the player himself is reportedly keen on remaining at the club, hoping for a place in England’s World Cup squad for 2018.

Though it may not be the most exciting news in the world, our local United fans are largely happy about this.
