John Stones

Blues want United to dig deep for Stones

John Stones Everton 2015-16Everton are readying themselves for a bid for John Stones from Manchester United this summer, but will want it to break the United banks.

The Daily Mail ran with a story that United want Stones, which was quickly followed by a story in the Echo saying that Everton value Stones at higher than the British record fee paid for a defender, which currently stands at £32m.

That fee was paid by Manchester City for the excellently named Eliaquim Mangala last summer, and Everton reportedly believe that John Stones is worth at least that figure.

The Echo also claim Everton will resist any offers for the former Barnsley defender, but should an offer come in of more than £30m, are the Blues in a position to decline?

Stones signed for Everton in January 2013 and has lit up the first team with performances beyond his 21 years of age, almost earning himself a call up to the England World Cup squad that travelled to Brazil (and quickly back again) last summer.
