The Chelsea midfielder has been linked with a move to the Red Devils, and Jones feels he is the sort of player they need.
What is the latest news involving Kante?
Erik ten Hag, who was unveiled as United manager on Monday, could look to make Kante one of his first signings if reports are to be believed.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Dutchman wants the 31-year-old to be a part of his rebuild at Old Trafford this summer.
There is a long way to go, though, before United fans can start dreaming about having the World Cup winner at their club.

What has Jones said about Kante and United?
At 31, Jones thinks Kante would be a short-term option for United; however, the transfer insider loves the idea of him bringing a winning mentality to Old Trafford.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, he said: “Somebody like Kante is obviously a short-term option that brings a winning mentality and raises the standard of the team. And there are certain positions where they’re going to have to look at that, and midfield is probably one space where they will look to do it.”
Is Kante past his best?
Honestly, it does look like Kante is on the decline, with the Frenchman coming in for heavy criticism last month after a lacklustre display in Chelsea’s first-leg defeat to Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
He is also picking up a lot of injuries, something manager Thomas Tuchel has recently spoken about. But at the same time, the German has discussed his importance to the Blues, comparing him to Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe in the process.
