And Everton needed a 'defender who can defend lad' .........like erm, Ashley Williams. The most uncultured and limited defender for 12m i have ever seen,
I don't know how this comes into it.
Stones was a shit defender for us and would've continued to be shit without the guidance of Guardiola.
We sold him for a lot more than what he was worth to us, so we won with the deal.
He got to play for the manager that can turn him into a great player, so he won with the deal.
City got a potential world-class player for a fee they could easily afford, so they won with the deal.
It was one of the very few transfer deals that was a no-brainer for all parties involved.
How we then spent that money has got nothing to do with it.
