The John Stones rumors are back! Wait, but did they ever go away? I guess not. Although, after the disappointing performance at Etihad, they are back with a bang!
As reported by the Express:
“The Chelsea board reacted to Sunday’s chastening 3-0 defeat to Manchester City – and the half-time substitution of captain John Terry – by submitting the improved offer for the 21-year-old England international yesterday.
“It was the third bid from Jose Mourinho’s side with Everton having already rejected bids of £20m and £26m.
“The £32m Manchester City paid for Eliaquim Mangala last summer makes him the most expensive defender in Premier League history.
“But there is an acceptance at Chelsea they will have to set a new benchmark of nearer £40m to test Everton’s resolve which makes yesterday’s offer all the more puzzling.”
40 MILLION POUNDS FOR JOHN STONES?
Honestly, this is getting crazier now. Everton probably knows that we are in a dire need of a Centre Back, after watching our performances so far this season. They also know our owner is Roman Abramovich, who is a Billionaire and isn’t afraid to spend big. They also know John Terry is nearing the twilight and we desperately need his successor. The Toffees are simply adding this all up!
It’s no secret we need a CB. But, is it wise to break the bank for 21-year-old, inexperienced, unproven, decent English Centre back, while we send the likes of talented players like Tomas Kalas and Andreas Christensen on loan? I am not so sure, what do you think?
