Chelsea set to go head to head to complete deal for Everton star

StonesChelsea and Manchester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern bring a tense atmosphere after the Daily Mail revealed it would be a head to head battle between the two clubs for Everton defender John Stones in the summer.

The Blues were weighing up a move for the 20-year-old last summer but a move never materialised whilst the Citizens have recently showed an interest after a difficult season, which featured plenty of defensive errors.

The England international has had an impressive season at Goodison Park this season and Jose Mourinho has singled out the youngster as a long term successor for their club captain John Terry.

On the other hand City are keen to bring more English talent to the Etihad this summer as they are set for a huge turn around of players.

But both of the English giants will have to pay big bucks for the defender after he signed a five year deal, worth £30,000-a-week, in August last year, meaning the Toffees can set their own price.

Chelsea and Manchester City. Why do you think John Stones would be better off moving to your club instead of the other? Let us know your thoughts below.
