According to recent reports in various British media outlets, English Premier League giants, Manchester United and Chelsea are set to fight tooth and nail in order to acquire the services of young upcoming defender, John Stones.
The youngster is currently under contract with Everton who would be looking for an astonishingly audacious bid to even think about selling a player who emerged as one of the finest young centre backs in the country last season. The Toffees want at least 50 million euros for Stones who despite attracting interest from the two English giants, is willing to stay at Goodison Park for a few more years before making a move to a bigger club.
John Terry is a big fan of the player and had this to say about him in a recent interview.
“I have seen a lot of games and I am a big fan of his. He pulls wide of the box and wants the ball and for a young defender to do that in the Premier League takes some guts.
“He is exceptional with both feet, he is a ball-playing centre half which you need to be these days. He is extremely confident. He looks to play from the back and that can only be good for English football that the likes of him are coming through. He is definitely one I have been impressed by.”
