BBC Sport have managed to get Chelsea fans shaking their heads here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think any transfer request from John Stones will be rejected by Everton.
The defender is a top target for Jose Mourinho, who has spent the latter part of this transfer window trying to land his man, but Everton are thought to want £45 million for the starlet, and will try and either keep hold of the player or make sure Chelsea pay the mammoth fee.
As one of our punters notes, we are not sure any young player is worth that amount, and Chelsea may well have to pay over the odds if they want to land their man – something that has not pleased Jose Mourinho or our punters.
Our landlord doesn’t blame Stones wanting to leave Everton for Chelsea – he would flourish and excel under the stewardship of Jose Mourinho!
Chelsea fans. Will Stones be worth it? Do you think the club will manage to land him by the end of the window? Let us know your thoughts below!
