Manchester City fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been excited at the prospect of Everton and England central defender John Stones joining the Pep Guardiola revolution ahead of next season.
The youngster has been sought-after for the majority of this summer by a number of clubs, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea all showing an interest at some point although City are leading the way after lodging a firm bid.
Our landlord has spotted some news via Sky Sports that could be promising towards a potential deal, with the website confirming that Stones’ club Everton are now aware of the bid which City have placed and an answer looks to be forthcoming.
Stones didn’t play a single minute for England at Euro 2016 but he is seen as a star of the national team for years to come, with City desperate to secure the player ahead of his best years.
One City fan is sat putting the footballing world to rights with the Tavern’s landlord and he thinks that Stones is worth the money, stating that City would have one of the brightest young players ahead of his best years.
Manchester City fans, would you welcome Stones at the Etihad Stadium? Should the club pay whatever it takes to sign him?
