Manchester United fans on Twitter are buzzing after it was reported by The Telegraph that Phil Jones could be offered to Leicester as part of a deal which would see Harry Maguire come to Old Trafford.
Reports have stated that the defender would command a world-record transfer fee for a defender if the 20-time champions of England want to sign the 26-year-old.
United may have found a way around this though, and their method seems to be to offer one of their defenders in a player plus cash deal.
This news had a number of supporters overjoyed as Jones hasn’t been the most popular player amongst the fanbase.
It remains to be seen whether or not this deal will be done, but if United do manage to get Jones off their books while signing Maguire, it would be a very popular move amongst fans.
Here’s what the Old Trafford faithful have been saying on Twitter…
This may just be rumours at this stage, but if it does happen it will no doubt go down as the deal of the century for Utd, a masterstroke…
