Was just having a convo with a Scouse pal of mine on Facebook about how they beat us to the signings of Henderson and Phil Jones when I received a very pleasing piece of news!
Despite claims he was on his way to Melwood for a medical, it appears Blackburn’s defender Phil Jones is having a medical with us with the intentions of signing a 5 year deal at Old Trafford.
As far as I know we weren’t in for Henderson when his deal to Liverpool was agreed but Liverpool fans have used previous interest to claim they beat us to his signing. Jones has been linked with us previously but it appeared he was on his way to Anfield before Sir Alex swooped so the move for Jones, an instance in which the two teams effectively went head to head, will have annoyed them no end.
The deal is said to be worth £16m and Jones can also play in midfield too.
