Talented defender urged to snub Chelsea and pick Manchester United instead

StonesThere’s some disgruntled boozy Blues fans in the Tavern today who are starting to clash with other tipsy fans of Manchester United today!

Not exactly the best of friends already, Chelsea fans are now really not happy with the boozy United lot.

This is after the reports coming in to the Transfer Tavern from talkSPORT that legendary England centre-back and ex-Red Devil Rio Ferdinand has publicly urged long term Chelsea target, John Stones, to snub their advances.

Ferdinand says the Evertonian should turn down Chelsea’s offer in favour of waiting out until United inevitably come knocking for the talented defender.

After already having two bids rejected by the Everton hierarchy, it already looked like Mourinho had his work cut out if he is to land the England international.

Now with such a respected and influential ex-England player making his advice to Stones public, could it perhaps stall a move to the Bridge?

A number of Red Devils fans over by the pool table here in the Transfer Tavern feel that Stones would be a fantastic addition to van Gaal’s squad, with all of them agreeing that Stones is destined to be a future, established England centre-back!

Chelsea fans……. What do you think? Will Stones listen to Ferdinand and go to United instead? United do you want him? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
