Phil Jones profile aged 27 in the year 2019

Phil Jones career history until 2019

This FM 2013 player profile of Phil Jones shows one of the best young defenders in Football Manager 2013. Unfortunately he doesn’t come cheap, Manchester United want less than 30 million for him at the start of the game and, even more important, the player doesn’t want to leave Old Trafford (at least he didn’t want to join Arsenal when I tried to sign him). However, you should add him to your shortlist right away and hope that he will want to leave at some point, you will get yourself a formidable centre back. The future screenshot from 2019 shows just how good he can become, and I guess he can develop even more with the right guidance. He bagged 78 international caps until the age of 27, I guess that says a lot about his quality. Phil Jones is strong, quick, he can tackle and even play a decent pass. Moreover, his mental attributes are just short of extraterrestrial. You might want to work a bit on his jumping though.

Best buy rating: 9.5/10

    Got him with Newcastle in third season for £17 million…awesome next to Papadopoulos!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 26, 2012

      Could be the best pair of CBs in the game. Quite a bargain at 17 mil too.

  • comment avatar Win_Zhou November 26, 2012

    will you do welbeck,cleverley and nick powell anytime soon??

  • comment avatar Omer November 26, 2012

    I got him to Everton after first year for 17, and he agreed 52K wage. He was unhappy but i think it’s games bug, MU gives up him to easily and he agrees to go from MU to Everton that’s ridiculous. And using him with Kirchhoff and they are great together.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 26, 2012

      That is a bit weird indeed, but good for you :)

      • comment avatar Omer November 26, 2012

        It would be better if 15-16 years old players doesn’t ask 15-20K wage. cant sign any youngster. SI claims they solve the problem and testing it now and will be in next patch.

      • comment avatar Darren Smith November 26, 2012

        Its actually because he doesn’t play consistently with the defense Man U have, so he gets fed up of no 1st team football and United don’t see him as valuable because his ability starts to drop…thats what happened in my game anyway.

  • comment avatar Jamie November 26, 2012

    What are Libor Kozak and Kweuke like in the future? I have them both at Swansea in season 1 and they are playing well just wondering what they are like further on

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 26, 2012

      They are pretty good, Kozak is at AS Monaco in 2019 and Kweukw is at Lille. Decent strong strikers I’d say.

  • comment avatar Cameron Moulton November 26, 2012

    Great player but out of my price range at qpr wait a little but for now could you suggest any good young british centre halves

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 26, 2012

      You could have a look at Danny Batth and maybe Caulker if you can get him from Spurs.

  • comment avatar Cameron Moulton November 26, 2012

    Thanks johnny I’ll check them out but phil jones will always be a long term target

  • comment avatar Win_Zhou November 27, 2012

    based on his stats isn’t it better to convert him as defensive midfielder instead??

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 27, 2012

      I think he’s better as a centre back but he would surely do well as a DM too.

  • comment avatar Cameron Moulton November 27, 2012

    Thanks johnny caulker didnt want to move and I signed Danny maguire from Sheffield united and Danny Batth. A bit off topic but Barkley or will Hughes for Amc advanced playmaker support

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 27, 2012

      What about Barkley or Hughes?

    • comment avatar Omer November 27, 2012

      They both have bright future but will needs more time to reach his potential on the other hand he is cheaper. His work rate and team work is a little bit better you can teach these and my opinion 13-14 team work isn’t enough for an advance playmaker, my criteria is at least 17.

      • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 27, 2012

        I agree with Omer, a playmaker needs good team work.

  • comment avatar Iker Muniain November 27, 2012

    Which ones better in that position sorry for being unclear

  • comment avatar Cameron Moulton November 27, 2012

    Thanks for the help guys just snapped up will hughes on your advice I don’t no why but i have a soft spor for him( no homo)and has been in excellent form for the England u19’s

  • comment avatar Dan Scutt November 30, 2012

    Amazing defender I released Rio after first season nd Jones became my first choice cb for United alongside Yanga Mbiwa. Is Varane gonna get a profile he’s looking quite good on mine in 3rd season

  • comment avatar Ankit December 7, 2012

    Last year both varane and jones were having nearly equal attributes. They were easily wonderkids but both were not profiled. This year jones has got him in your criteria, hope varane will be profiled soon.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp December 8, 2012

      Last year both Varane and Jones were impossible to buy at the start of the game. This year you can buy them right away though, and that’s why both profiles will be here at some point.

  • comment avatar Oscar Lindholm January 15, 2013

    You can pick this guy up for around 18£ at the start of the game if you are a pretty decent club, Arsenal, Real etc. I’d say that Jones is a must buy for that price, just as Alaba is. I happen to buy those two guys each game I start. Also because of both guys versatility

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp January 16, 2013

      My test was with Arsenal, that’s how I got that asking price.

  • comment avatar vjcsmoke October 25, 2013

    Got Phil Jones for 8.5m pounds in season 4 of my Atletico Madrid save. Absolute bargain. He makes an awesome defensive duo with Kurt Zouma!!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 25, 2013

      8.5 mil is a steal, well done!

  • comment avatar Andy Thompson February 1, 2014

    I am thinking of playing Phil Jones as right back so i can bring in another defenders and maybe have rafeal as back up any idea’s if he could top job at right back?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 2, 2014

      He would but there would be preferred more natural options I guess.
