Phil Jones could be living his last hours as a Manchester United player. The club wants to make some departures in order to sign new players, and the defender is one of the candidates to leave Old Trafford. According to 'Eurosport', West Ham could be the player's next destination.
United need to reduce their wage bill, so they would be willing to let Phil Jones leave without any fee, despite the fact that his contract expires in 2023. This situation would allow the player to join West Ham as a free agent, something the Hammers are keen to do.
The England defender has had a difficult few months with the Red Devils, having not played for the first team for 18 months due to injury. If the deal is confirmed, the player would close a very long spell in Manchester, where he has made 224 appearances after arriving in the 2010-11 season.
One factor that makes Phil Jones closer to West Ham is his good relationship with David Moyes, the Hammers' coach. The two men met at Manchester, and the coach values positively to have the centre-back. According to 'Eurosport', Newcastle are also interested in the player.
