Today British media have announced that Man United are ready to launch an almost £50m bid for Everton defender John Stones.
It’s believed that Chelsea is a long-term admirer of the skillful centre-back, the Blues have already had three £20m, £25m, and £30m bids rejected from The Toffees, but now it seems that Merseyside Blues will discuss Man United’s offer.
The Rumors suggested that the Red Devils have made Stones their main target, so Chelsea and Van Gaal’s side will battle for the highly-rated centre-back, who has even submitted a transfer request last summer but Everton didn’t let him go.
The 21-year-old defender played 13 games this season in the Premier League; He has won 22 tackles. Stones has also made 27 interceptions, 13 blocks and 52 clearances.
