Manchester United move swiftly for John Stones

The England international has attracted a lot of interest from Chelsea in the last few days and now, Louis van Gaal is set to throw his lot into the hat

According to reports, Everton manager, Roberto Martinez has been left simmering in anger over Chelsea’s public pursuit of the young centre back and has criticised Jose Mourinho for trying to unsettle the young defender. And now, it appears that the Toffees might not want to deal with the Blues.

This has given Manchester United an open opportunity to make their move for John Stones and have informed Everton that they would like to sign the player and will not be making any comment about their interest in him. Moreover, the Red Devils are willing to offer the Merseysiders Johnny Evans as part of the deal which might force the club into lowering its asking price for the young defender who is definitely one to watch out for.
