Jose Mourinho to sell these two Man United stars in the summer

Phil Neville speaks the truth about Jones & Smalling after Newcastle 1-0 Man Utd

It means the Citizens are now 16 points clear at the top and but for a miraculous recovery from those below them, a third Premier League title beckons.

Though United have hardly been shrinking violets in the transfer market - they spent £164m in the summer according to Transfermarkt.com and also acquired Alexis Sanchez in January - Mourinho wants further additions to improve his defence. Both defenders had initially been penciled as the long-term central defensive pairing by Sir Alex Ferguson, who had signed them. Chris Smalling nearly conceded a penalty when he brought down Dwight Gayle in the box and then gave away the free-kick that led to Newcastle's goal.

After Jones was dropped for the win over Huddersfield Town, the pair were reunited for their next away game against a Newcastle side who were before the match the fifth lowest scorers in the division.

Neville says the recent form of the duo has been "a disaster" and felt their play at the weekend made the rest of the United team nervous.

But England Women manager and former United player Phil Neville believes that record comes in spite of Jones and Smalling.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly set to sell defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling at the end of the end of the season ahead of a major squad revamp.

United have been linked with a £50m summer swoop for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire, while they could take advantage of the growing turmoil at Real Madrid with a move for France centre-half, Raphael Varane. "Against Newcastle did they make many mistakes, no, but they created a nervousness and a tension".

"They brought these two in as the best young centre-backs in England."

"But the last two away games, Smalling and Jones have been a disaster".

Despite the Old Trafford outfit boasting the best defensive record in the Premier League, their frailties are starting to be exposed.

This season, Smalling has slowly become a regular following the injury suffered by Eric Bailly, who has been sidelined for the last three months.
