It seems that the John Stones to Chelsea transfer saga will not just die down, after plenty of speculations in the summer transfer window linking the England international to a move to Stamford Bridge. The Everton centre-back could have left Goodison Park to complete a switch to west London, as he wanted to though the Toffees kept rebuffing all approaches made for his services.
There were constant speculations about the move happening though eventually nothing was finalized and he remained at the Merseyside. Further, the Mirror has now stated that all the drama will start once again, as manager Jose Mourinho & Co. are already preparing a new bid to be made in the new year for their target.
The bid that will be made by the Blues will be higher than the £37m bid they offered in the summer and will once again test Everton’s resolve. It will be interesting to see if Roberto Martinez says can hold on to the 21-year-old defensive superstar, who will be a great addition to any squad.
