Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are getting exciting about signing one of England’s rising stars after the Daily Mail revealed they are lining up a summer bid for Everton defender John Stones.
Stones, who has made 29 appearances for the Toffees, looks comfortable at the top level after competing in all competitions under Roberto Martinez.
It will be hard for Louis van Gaal to lure him to Old Trafford though as he is currently tied down at Everton until 2019.
Not only has the centre back proved himself at club level but he has also shown he is capable playing for England at Under 21 level, making him an attractive player from a United perspective.
The 21-year-old has potential to become the next Nemanja Vidic or Rio Ferdinand as United desperately look for solidarity at the back.
