Will John Stones join Chelsea? Will Everton let go of their in-demand, star defender? These questions so far, have been the talking points of this transfer window.
As we already know, Chelsea did make a bid for the young English Centre Back couple of times, but the both the bids of 20 Million Pounds and 26 Million Pounds respectively were rejected by Everton. Roberto Martinez expressed his frustration over this whole fiasco criticising John Terry and Gary Cahill for intimidating John Stones in joining the Blues outfit.
Roberto Martinez expressed his frustration over this whole fiasco criticising John Terry and Gary Cahill for intimidating John Stones in joining the Blues outfit. Although, these were the exact tactics used by Martinez during that whole Lukaku saga so, feeling bitter maybe?
Meanwhile, some report circulating in the Metro reveals that Chelsea could be considering a third bid for the 21-year-old:
Despite Roberto Martinez’s public posturing, the fact Chelsea went back with a second bid suggests that the two clubs are talking and the Mirror report that Everton will concede if a bid over £30m is met. There’s also the fact that Everton owe a considerable sum to the Blues for the signing of Romelu Lukaku, a debt they’d rather be without.
Well, that’s an interesting part that I would like to highlight upon. The fact that Everton still owe some money to Chelsea over the whole Lukaku transfer! It should be worth noting that Chelsea received a whopping 27 Million Pounds for Romelu Lukaku but, considering that Everton aren’t a financial superpower, it could be possible that the Merseyside club still owe us money.
And if that’s the case, Snitching away John Stones from Everton could become all that easier!
