Varane could join for £51m, Ben White interested, Van de Beek-Rabiot swap – Man Utd transfer news LIVE


Noel Gallagher has called out Sir Alex Ferguson after the Scot claimed the signing of Phil Jones was better than City’s capture of Sergio Aguero.

The Oasis founder chuckled as he recalled what Fergie had said when the players signed for the two Manchester clubs.

City fan Noel, 53, said: “I remember we signed Aguero at the same time United signed Phil Jones and Sir Alex claimed that Jones would prove to be the best centre half in the world within a year or two.

“He also pointed to the Aguero signing and said ‘City have been reckless again in the transfer market’.

“One has gone on to be a club legend, scoring goal after goal and winning trophy after trophy and there is even talk of a statue outside the ground. I don’t think we’ll be seeing a statue of Phil Jones at Old Trafford anytime soon.”

Both players arrived in Manchester in 2011. Aguero, aged 32, cost £35million from Atletico Madrid, while Utd paid Blackburn £16.5m for Jones, 29.
