The Whites are hoping for a rebuild under the leadership of former Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig head coach Jesse Marsch. The 48-year-old American helped Leeds United avoid relegation after joining the club in late February this year. The Premier League side finished 17th last season with 38 points.
So far, Leeds United have already made two signings. They have signed Danish right-back Rasmus Kristensen and United States midfielder Brenden Aaronson - both from Red Bull Salzburg.
According to a report by MARCA, Leeds United are keen on adding former Blackburn Rovers centre-back Jones to their ranks.
With Manchester United packed to the brim in his position, Jones is expected to end his 11-year stay at Old Trafford this summer. He made just five appearances last season, with only two of those being starts due to his persistent injury problems.
During his time at the club, Jones has won one Premier League title, one FA Cup and one UEFA Europa League trophy.
Leeds United are also hoping to rope in Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca, Barcelona right-back Sergino Dest and Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi amongst others. Paris Saint-Germain forward Arnaud Kalimuendo and New York City forward Valentin Castellanos have also been linked with a move, according to that same MARCA report.
Manchester United could land one of three midfielders in the summer
With club-record signing Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata set to leave the club, Manchester United are in dire need of midfield reinforcements. Hence, Erik ten Hag has prioritised the signing of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who has reportedly agreed to make a move to Old Trafford.
If the move for De Jong fails to gain traction, the Red Devils are in contention to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves to strengthen their midfield depth.
United are also interested in acquiring the services of Ajax winger Antony. Journalist Pedro Almeida has indicated that the transfer is on its way towards completion.
Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League table in the 2021-22 season with 58 points (their worst points tally ever in the PL era) and ended the season trophyless. The Red Devils will look to bounce back from what was one of their worst seasons since the formation of the Premier League in 1992.
