The Manchester City fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports of a swap deal which includes one of their players leaving this summer.
According to reports in The Sun, the Premier League side are hoping to persuade Everton to swap John Stones for Wilfried Bony this summer.
The move could be made if, as expected, Romelu Lukaku leaves Goodison Park for pastures new this summer, opening up a potential space in new manager Ronald Koeman’s frontline.
Incoming City manager Pep Guardiola is still in the hunt for a new defender this summer having missed out on Aymeric Laporte, who opted to stay in La Liga after signing a new deal with Athletic Bilbao.
Bony has struggled to make an impact at the Etihad since arriving from Swansea City, and it is thought that the Ivory Coast international is open to the idea of leaving City this summer.
Would Guardiola be the man to mould Stones into an England star? Could Bony replace Lukaku?
