Man Utd will demand big money for Jones sale

Manchester United will demand big money in January to sell Phil Jones.

The Sun says they will demand £20million to sanction an exit for unwanted defender Jones.

The former Blackburn Rovers centre-back arrived under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2011 to great expectation but has seen his career stall and he is now on the periphery of the first-team squad.

Jones, who surprisingly extended his deal through to 2023 last summer, could look to end his United exile in January and it will take a fee of £20m.

Jones has struggled with his fitness in recent seasons and has managed just eight games in the past 12 months. He last featured in an FA Cup tie at Tranmere back in January and scored in the 6-1 victory.
