The Phil Jones – Watford deal is over

06 Th2 2022 | 03:08

In order to improve the defense, Watford has put a star on the payroll of Manchester United in its sights.

With the hope of staying in the Premier League, Watford quickly sacked coach Claudio Ranieri after a string of poor results. Replacing the Italian captain is coach Roy Hogdson, and of course, besides changing generals, the Bees also need new contracts.

 Phil Jones remains at Man Utd. 

This season, Watford is the team that owns the worst defensive record in the Premier League , they have conceded 40 goals in 20 games this season – just behind Newcastle United (43) and Norwich City (45). So Hodgson planned to upgrade the defense with a Man Utd star.

The BBC quoted sources from Football Insider as saying, the British strategist admires Phil Jones ‘s talent , after the time they both worked on the England team. Need to know, in the past, Hodgson has filled Jones’ name in the squad to participate in EURO 2012 and 2014 World Cup of the Three Lions, but unfortunately, the plan to bring this midfielder to Watford was bankrupt for an undisclosed reason. .

Currently, Jones has returned from injury but the opportunity to play is still very limited. He just got his second game against Middlesbrough , after starting in the match against Wolves. Therefore, Jones himself also considered leaving in the last transfer window. It is known that he almost reached an agreement with Bordeaux and moved to play in Ligue 1.
