Even though he has only played 21 games for Man Utd in four years, Phil Jones has cost the club an astonishing amount.


Since joining Manchester United in 2011, PHIL JONES has reportedly made £42.1 million in salary.

The forgotten man at Old Trafford has been sidelined by injury once again and has yet to make an appearance this season.


Jones, a former United team staple, has been plagued by physical issues in recent years.

In fact, in the past four years, he has only been able to suit up for a total of 21 games.

Unexpectedly in February 2019, the Red Devils re-signed him to a new four-and-a-half year deal, rumored to be worth 110,000 per week.

With his contract expiring at the end of the current campaign, the Express claims Jones has cost United £28.5m since 2018.

Jones, who is now 31, originally signed with United from Blackburn in a £16 million deal back in 2011.

During his first four years at the Theatre of Dreams, he reportedly made £59k per week. In 2015, he signed a new deal worth £74k, and three years later, his salary increased to £110k.

In Jones’ early years at Old Trafford, he showed a lot of promise, helping the team win the Premier League in 2013 and earning the label of “future England captain” from Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, injuries began to slow his progress, and since the 2014–15 Premier League season, Jones has only once played in more than 20 games.


He has appeared 229 times for United, but hasn’t gotten any playing time so far this season.

He missed the entire 2020-21 season, but he made five appearances under Ralf Rangnick’s watch.

Jones gave an interview to Sky Sports before Man United’s Carabao Cup victory over Newcastle United at Wembley Stadium.

There’s no denying the fact that it’s been an arduous journey, both physically and emotionally, he said.

I’ve got a lot of moxy, and football is my passion. I’m making every effort to recover and return to action.

In light of everything that has happened to you, both physically and emotionally, it can be challenging to cope with the news that you have been injured.

The club’s treatment of me has been nothing short of outstanding. To a great extent, I attribute this to the love and encouragement of my loved ones.

“That’s fantastic, and I can’t wait to get back outside.”
