Time Is Against Phil Jones to Fulfil His Once-Burgeoning Potential at Manchester United
It has been announced this week that Phil Jones has signed a contract extension with Manchester United that will keep him at the club until 2019, much to the surprise of many supporters. After two poor seasons, alarm bells are ringing for some after learning that Jones is seemingly in Louis van Gaal’s long-term plans. Jones’ stock has fallen dramatically over the past couple of years at the club, which would have been difficult to predict when he first joined United. In the summer of 2011, Jones snubbed offers from the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool to move to Old Trafford.

Liverpool have been the busiest Premier League outfit so far, already sealing the purchases of James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Danny Ings and Adam Bogdan, with young defender Joe Gomez also joining from Charlton and Nathaniel Clyne’s £12.5m move from Southampton set to be announced this week.
