Manchester United and Chelsea fans cannot wait to hear what Metro have to say here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Red Devils are set to beat Chelsea to the signing of Everton player John Stones.
Stones has been a huge target for Chelsea and Mourinho this summer, with the manager even going public with his interest in the player, but as one of our regulars notes over a couple of pints, the under fire Blues boss seems to be facing one problem after another, and having Stones sign for United would be the final straw.
United meanwhile are willing to offer Jonny Evans as part of the deal and hope that will secure the player for them, and convince Everton to agree to a transfer.
A plethora of United fans by the dartboard here in the Transfer Tavern feel that the club need to be signing a world-class, established centre-back this summer, someone like Sergio Ramos or Mats Hummels – not John Stones!
Chelsea fans. Is this just another thing in a long line of failures this summer? Will Stones make a huge difference to Manchester United? Let us know your thoughts below!
