Manchester City ready with sensational bid for Man United and Chelsea target Stones

Everton defender John Stones will certainly be a subject to a mega £40m bid from Manchester City this summer window when Pep Guardiola arrives at Manchester City, according to a report from The Sun.

There has been for long some heavy interest in the 21-year-old Stones and he was also denied a move to Chelsea last summer following the Stamford Bridge club’s several lucrative offers turned down, but it is now believed that Manchester City will try their luck at the end of this season to tempt the highly rated youngster. Manchester United was also on a pursuit to land him but their desperation didn’t work well in the winter window.

Also, there have been reports suggesting that Guardiola’s former club Barcelona are keeping an eye on the player’s current situation, who actually came through the several ranks at Goodison Park.

However, the incoming City manager has been really impressed by what he has seen so far and has decided to recruit the talented English defender in order to shake up an inconsistent defence that has made some costly errors this term.

The likes of Eliaquim Mangala and Nicholas Otamendi, who were signed by Manchester City splashing some money amounts, have failed to prove their worth till now at the Etihad.

That’s why Current Bayern Munich boss wants someone he can put his faith as he aims to win the Premier League title at the very first season on English soil.

But Guardiola has to keep in mind that, John Stones has not enjoyed his best season with Everton shirt this term, and some poor form has ultimately resulted in being dropped from the squad by manager Roberto Martinez, and replaced by Phil Jagielka.

Maybe Stones has not been in the right place mentally in this campaign as the interest was shown by European giants like Manchester United, Chelsea, Barcelona but what is certain is that the exceptional potential being shown by the young defender.

Last month Everton boss claimed John Stones has improved on and off the pitch since Chelsea tried their best to lure the England international last summer for a sensational move and that Everton’s refusal to sell contributed to the latest development.

Martinez also had suggested Stones would receive a reward of a new contract which will financially reflect his status as one of Europe’s finest young defenders after last summer’s transfer window closed. But, no deal has been signed so far. Stones was secured to a new five-year contract only in 2014.
