Roberto Martinez – Stones is NOT for Sale, Chelsea and United can FORGET him
The Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester United should consider their pursuit for John Stones to be over as Everton boss Roberto Martinez clearly mentioned for the final time that they would not sell their priced possession to any club this season.
Everton youngster John Stones who was highly impressive last season had attracted interest from the big boys in the league. Both United and Chelsea were in search of a good center back who could bolster their backline. While United desperately needs a quality center back, Chelsea are looking forward to slowly replace John Terry from the strting lineup.
But Martinez’s statement will now force the giants to shift their focus from the players.
Martinez was quoted: “I have said before the player is not for sale and that is the end of it. Our situation has been very clear from the beginning. We are not a selling club who will lose our best performers.
His performance at the weekend was very strong and for a young man to come up with that leadership is a real sign of what he is as a footballer.
He is very important player for us and we are looking forward to seeing the best of John over the next few seasons, not just the next few weeks.”
Roberto repeated his words yet again and clarified that they are not a selling club. John Stones have played in all the pre-season gaes for Everton and also was fielded in the opening match of the season against Watford which had ended in 2-2 draw.
Chelsea had previously placed two bids the last one being £26m, but both stood rejected by the Toffees.
The English center back is likely to continue at the Goodison Park for this season also.
