Manchester United have no chance of getting Phil Jones out of the books this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The center-back’s Old Trafford contract has two more years remaining on it, making him ‘effectively unsellable’ in the current transfer market.
Phil Jones played his last game for the Red Devils in January 2020 before a series of mysterious injuries kept him on the sidelines for a total of 13 months.
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old defender signed a new long-term contract in February 2019 and Man United actually have an option of extending it for a further season.
According to Transfermarkt the player is valued at just €5 million.
As things stand, Man United need to get rid of some players who are ineffective in the squad to help new ones arrive. Currently, reports claim that the Red Devils are close to agreeing to personal terms with Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane and about a matter of time until the deal is done as the player has informed his current club of his desire to join United.
