Stoke have shown an interest in Phil Jones, as have Arsenal according to reports but we also know United aren’t looking to sell the England international.

Jose Mourinho has reportedly spoken with the defender and informed him he doesn’t want him to leave United with Jones also content to remain at Old Trafford and fight for his first-team place.

If Jones was allowed to leave United the London Evening Standard has claimed he wouldn’t be sold to Arsenal as Mourinho doesn’t want to do business with Arsene Wenger! Owing to a long-term feud the pair have had dating back to his Chelsea days.

Putting aside any petty squabbles you wouldn’t have though Mourinho would want to sell Jones to Arsenal, who was wanted by them when United signed him from Blackburn, anyway as why would the Red Devils want to sell to a rival and potentially make them stronger and us weaker!
