Report: Phil Jones' Manchester United future could be in doubt as Marcos Rojo rejects move
Phil Jones wasn't named amongst those reportedly free to leave Manchester United.
However, according to Duncan Castles, a journalist with close links to Jose Mourinho, the 24-year-old defender could potentially join Hull City on a season-long loan deal.
"Hull's proposal to Jones that he re-establish his status as one of England's leading defenders by spending a season as their starting centre back was initiated by Steve Bruce, who subsequently resigned as manager," Castles writes.
United are now reportedly waiting to see if the newly-promoted club, which is something of a mess at the moment, renew their interest in the player signed from Blackburn Rovers in 2011.
Jones started well at United, but injuries restricted him to just 13 appearances last season.
Marcos Rojo is another who could be on his way out of Old Trafford. The Argentine defender has rejected a move to the Chinese Super League, according to Castles.
Shanghai SIPG, who are coached by Sven Goran Eriksson and recently signed Brazilian forward Hulk, made an offer for Rojo, but the defender reportedly doesn't want to play in China.
According to Castles, Rojo rejecting the move adds to Mourinho's "rebuilding woes." Which is an interesting way to look at a player not wanting to leave the Premier League and move to the other side of the world.
Has Rojo even considered the headache he's giving Mourinho by being so selfish?
