Manchester United star Phil Jones will leave the club at the end of the season after spending 12 years at the club. The English defender has been struggling with injuries for some seasons now.
Manchester United released an official statement on their website to confirm the departure of Phil Jones at the end of the season.
“Phil Jones is to leave Manchester United when his contract expires in the summer,” the club confirmed.
“The central defender joined the club in 2011 from Blackburn Rovers and won the league in the following season (2012/13), Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge. The 31-year-old, who has been capped 27 times by England, made 229 appearances for the Reds and scored six goals.
“With his final outing coming in a 3-0 win over Brentford at the end of last season, as a substitute for Juan Mata, he has been sidelined throughout 2022/23, despite incredible efforts, on his part, to regain fitness. It has been a frustrating time for Jones, who is looking to the future and a new chapter, while being extremely grateful for the support of his family and the club’s fans over this gruelling period.
“Our no.4 is now taking some time before deciding his next move and everybody at United would like to wish Phil the very best of luck for the future.”
