One of the most talked about possible deals all summer here in the Transfer Tavern was the prospect of John Stones bidding farewell to Everton Football Club and Merseyside, and making his way down south to the capital to join Chelsea.
Despite numerous bids for the defender, the reigning Premier League champions did not quite manage to do enough to get hold of the young England International’s signature. Now it seems like they may really come to regret this!
With Gary Cahill now a senior player and John Terry going through the latter stages of his career, they desperately need a refreshing addition to the title winning back four and many pundits thought this may still happen in January, in the form of John Stones.
However, reports flying into the Transfer Tavern today are making the Blues fans here in the Tavern spill a fair few pints, as TalkSPORT are saying (via Spanish Publication AS) that Spanish superclub, Real Madrid, will make a big money move for Stones, should Raphael Varane leave.
What do you think about this Chelsea fans? Have you missed out on Stones? Will you come to regret it? Let us know below!
