Everton’s John Stones 1/2 to join Manchester City this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Stones to join Man Utd
Odds: 1/2 @ William Hill
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has set his stall out to sign a centre-back this summer, and while the likes of Leonardo Bonucci of Juventus has been linked, a player closer to home in John Stones remains a transfer target.
Money is no object for the Sky Blues, and while Everton aren’t obliged to sell their star defender, City are reportedly willing to pay around £50M for the England international. Stones’ composure in possession and ability to pick out a pass from deep is exactly what Guardiola is looking for in his defenders and another bid could be in the offing.
Stones would be a player filling up the homegrown quota too so there are a lot of pros to the deal than cons. At 22, the centre-back has a lot of development still to make, but he could become one of the best in his position under a coach like Pep Guardiola. Everton are targeting a centre-back this summer which suggests Stones might leave too.
A lucrative bid for the Englishman is expected in the coming week, and as a result John Stones is 1/2 with William Hill to join City in the summer transfer window.
