Go For It Mourinho – Manchester United Must Consider Offering A Deal To This Resurgent English Star

Phil Jones Why Phil Jones Deserves A New Contract At Manchester United Manchester United are believed to be undergoing contract talks with defender Phil Jones. His current contract is set to expire in 2019, making it all the more vital for the club to renew his deal, considering how brilliantly he has played for the club so far in the new season. Jones has battled his way into the starting XI this season after struggling to make an impact last term amid problems with both form and fitness. He has forced his way into establishing himself as one of Jose Mourinho’s first-choice centre-backs. The fact that United have maintained the best defensive record in the league with the most number of clean sheets speaks volumes about how Jones has contributed. In fact, his performances were strong enough to earn him a call back to the England national team. Although the contract talks are at an early stage, both parties are confident of a successful conclusion. Jones’ Manchester United career chart has been filled with ups and downs. The defender was a regular squad player under Sir Alex Ferguson, who had labelled him as England’s best future centre-back. Despite starting on the right note, Jones suffered a lot of setbacks, with multiple injuries over the past couple of seasons. Even when he re-joined the club as a regular starting member this time, people had their doubts but Jones has proven everybody wrong with his consistently solid form. His partnership with teammate Eric Bailly has been a hit so far as the Red Devils have only conceded 4 goals so far in 9 Premier League matches. Such a player truly deserves to be rewarded with a new and improved deal which could see him earn more than what he is doing right now. Club manager Mourinho has always been quite vocal about his opinions regarding his squad, and is understood to be quite happy with the way Jones has recovered from his injuries to attain full fitness. He came back from his summer break in the best possible shape, and it almost seems like there’s no stopping him. Thus, with Jones having a positive impact on strengthening United’s defence, there seems to be no reason as to why United should not consider offering him a new contract. The player is a valuable asset for the Red Devils and his services will be crucial if United are to continue their scintillating start to the new season. He is one of the strongest defenders in the Premier League right now, and Manchester United should most definitely offer him a new deal. ...
