Manchester City ‘in talks’ with Everton over £50 million deal for defender John Stones – reports

28 Jul

Manchester City have opened talks with Everton for the transfer of John Stones, according to reports.

Pep Guardiola is known to be a big fan of the English centre-back, and after a summer of being linked with the youngster, it appears as if the club have formalised their interest in him.

A deal has yet to be agreed, but reports claim the Citizens will pay roughly £50 million for the 22-year-old, who was a target for Chelsea last summer.

talkSPORT reported earlier in July that Stones had informed new Everton boss Ronald Koeman of his desire to leave Goodison Park, with a move to City his preferred destination.

And now that the two clubs are close to agreeing a deal, it appears as if the youngster will be confirmed as a City player in the coming weeks.

Guardiola has already brought four players to City this summer, having completed deals for Nolito, Ilkay Gundogan, Aaron Mooy and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
