Blackburn defender Jones completes £16M Man Utd move today

Blackburn Rovers defender Phil Jones will complete his move to Manchester United today. The Sun says Jones, 19, had a medical at Carrington yesterday after agreeing a five-year deal initially worth £40,000 a week.

Fergie snatched the defender from under Liverpool's nose in a £16.5m swoop.

He already has an £18.3m deal for Atletico Madrid keeper David De Gea, 20, in the bag and is close to sealing a £20m move for Aston Villa's Ashley Young.

Now Fergie is even considering joining the race for Udinese's £30m-rated ace Alexis Sanchez, 22, who is also a Manchester City target.

Jones - who last night jetted out to join the England Under-21 squad in Denmark - is clearly part of Ferguson's vision for the future as he injects more youth into his squad.
