Goals from PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Blaise Matuidi saw the French club grab a pre-season win over Manchester United, with defender Phil Jones coming under increased criticism from the fans for his poor display.
Phil Jones and Daley Blind have been Louis van Gaala s preferred centre back pairing in pre-season, but they were exposed cruelly as PSG attackers kept finding space.
Manchester United are in the transfer market for a central defender and though Sergio Ramos has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, it seems that the Real Madrid captain is now set to stay following reports that he is about to sign a new deal with the Spanish giants.
Reports have now emerged stating that . Manchester United have joined Chelsea FC in the chase for Everton defender John Stones, and following of Phil Jones’ poor performance, one can understand why Manchester United are desperate to sign another centre back.
‘Phil Jones’ was trending on twitter following the PSG game for a good reason, as Manchester United fans slammed the defender’s poor display as evident from the tweets below.
And to think Jones was looking forward to returning to Chicago, where he had made his Manchester United debut only makes the whole situation that much more funnier.

You’ve got to laugh at Phil Jones, it’s like we’ve given the physio a run out. a Gaz (@CantonaManc) July 30, 2015
For PSG’s second goal, Phil Jones never looked behind his shoulder to see Zlatan. He has no football IQ. I’m more intelligent than him.
