Jones ready to battle any new Man Utd defensive signing

Manchester United defender Phil Jones insists he can handle any new centre-half signing.

Napoli superstar Kalidou Koulibaly is just one player tipped to move to Old Trafford in the summer.

But Jones told Goal: “The way I see it is it's just like when I signed; we're Man United, of course we're going to be attracted to the best players in the world.

"I'd be disappointed if we weren't, I want to win things as well. It might sound very cliched but it's great.

"You want to win things, you want the best players to come to Manchester United and if we're playing better and we're winning things and we're challenging for things then we're going to attract the best players.

“We're always going to attract the best players because everybody wants to play for Man Utd.

"That's how the club works and the club runs, but I embrace the challenge and I look forward to it."
