DC United boss Wayne Rooney is said to be interested in out-of-favor Manchester
United defender, Phil Jones.
According to the Daily Star, the 30-year-old Red Devil veteran could soon end his 11-
year United stint and head for a new challenge in the MLS.
Jones has been at Old Trafford since his move from Blackburn Rovers in 2011. Still,
his long United career has been plagued with an abundance of injuries leaving the
versatile player unable to get back into the United squad.
However, United have struggled to get the injury-prone player off their books after
Jones accepted a new four-year deal in 2019 in which he earns a staggering £110,000
Therefore for a deal to go ahead, the Daily Star suggests that United will need to
subsidize the majority of those wages in a loan deal.
NSL LEARNT: former United teammate and good friend Rooney tried to rescue Jones
from the United bench last year in a potential loan deal with former club Derby
County; however, his wages caused a stumbling block. Will this be the year Jones
finally leaves the Theatre of Dreams?
