Manchester United have so far left their domestic rivals in the shade during the summer transfer window, with an outlay so far of around £51 million.
The acquisitions of Phil Jones, Ashley Young and David De Gea have caused quite a stir in Manchester, as Sir Alex Ferguson shapes a squad capable of challenging for European glory once more.
One of the trio of United new boys to particularly excite Old Trafford legend Gary Neville is Phil Jones, with the former believing the 19-year-old will become a Reds skipper one day.
“I think this lad’s going to be a star, I really do,” Neville told The New Paper in Singapore.
“I think he’s going to be somebody who could potentially be a captain of Manchester United in the future.
"He looks really solid and he’s somebody who can be a huge player for the club for the next ten years.
“There’s a lot of potential there and the performances he’s put in over the last two years have been outstanding, particularly against us,” Neville added. “For a 19-year-old that’s excellent. He’s a great signing for us.”
