BREAKING: Arsenal & Liverpool Target Phil Jones Having United Medical

By on June 8, 2011

Sky Sports News is reporting that Blackburn defender Phil Jones is currently at Manchester United’s training ground undergoing a medical, which will be much to the disappointment of Arsenal and Liverpool who were thought to be keen on signing the player.

Jones was believed to be top of both Arsenal and Liverpool’s transfer wish list this summer, with some reports suggesting he was set for a medical at Liverpool today. But it seems Fergie has trumpt his rivals and a £15m deal could be concluded soon with Jones signing a 5-year-deal with Man Utd.

    Jones is a great buy as he will be a great player in the future. We now need to complete the signings of De Gea, Sneijder and Young. I hope we have a chance with Nasri as well.

    And just who said Phil Jones was top of our wish list?

    Oh yeah, only the ever-truthful Daily Mail last week – and even then it was all about Liverpool.

    This guy’s only just 19. We already have promising 19 year-old centre-backs. In fact we’ve just got another one in Carl Jenkinson who we’ve been negotiating with Charlton over for months.

    If anyone here really thinks we’d be spending anything anywhere near £15M on yet another 19 year old defender has to be pretty thick.

    And let’s say for argument’s sake Wenger was in for this unproven ‘star’ of Stuart Pearce’s all-conquering hopefuls and he actually went ahead and bought him – what do you think the reaction from the fans would be? ‘Well spent’ or ‘you’re avin a laff’?

    When Wenger said we need proven Premier League defending experience and hight I’m guessing he probably meant it. Which is why he approached Chris Samba earlier in the year.

    Just another made up story swallowed hook line and sinker by idiots.
