Jose Mourinho calls in Man United star for showdown talks – report

Phil Jones is set to hold face to face talks with new Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho this week

Jose Mourinho is planning to hold showdown talks with Phil Jones about his future at Manchester United, according to reports.

The England international’s situation at Old Trafford has been a source of speculation after Mourinho moved quickly to bring in defender Eric Bailly from Villarreal last week as his first summer signing.

Now, The Sun is reporting that Jones is set to be told about his future at Old Trafford by Mourinho this week as the Portuguese coach continues to plan for his first season in charge.

The same report says that Mourinho requested face to face talks with Jones, who struggled with injuries last season.

Mourinho is believed to be on the lookout for a number of new players as he prepares for his first season in charge at Old Trafford.
