Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are incredibly excited at the news they are reading in the Express – with the publication claiming that Chelsea are set to launch a £40 million bid for Everton star John Stones, subsequently dashing Manchester United’s hopes of landing the defender.
Stones, 21, has been nothing short of sensational for the Toffees this season, with him often receiving a large amount of praise from our regulars here in the Tavern.
It seems that Jose Mourinho is desperate to sort out their faltering 2015/16 season, and John Stones is seemingly the man the Blues want to help steady the ship, and get the London outfit back up to the higher echelons of the Premier League table.
The publication suggests that Manchester United are also keen on the England international, but a move to Stamford Bridge is appearing more likely – and our resident Chelsea fans are very, very happy about this news!
The Chelsea fans here in the Tavern over by the pool table feel Stones is exactly what the club need in January, and he is the man to take over from John Terry going forwards!
