Chelsea

Premier League club concerned as Manchester United and Manchester City enter the race for star

stonesEverton fans agree they have spent almost the entire summer in the Football Transfer Tavern worryingly discussing the future of John Stones over a pint or two.

And now there is further concern, as our landlord notes a report from the Mail on Sunday which claims both Manchester United and Manchester City are now chasing the England international.

Stones has been a target for Chelsea all summer, with Jose Mourinho set to make a third improved bid for the youngster which will exceed the previous offer of £26million.

Despite Martinez insisting Stones is not for sale, the Toffees are concerned that they will be forced into a sale by a major offer from one or both of the two mega rich Manchester clubs.

With still two weeks of the transfer window to run, our punters in the Tavern reckon there’s gonna be a few more pints and a whole lot more worry regarding Stones until then.

Everton fans, do you think there will be a late twist in the John Stones saga? Let us know your thoughts below!
