Oh when will it ever end! Well, probably just before the transfer window closes on Monday evening when John Stones finally moves to Chelsea. But until then, we have much more speculation and hearsay to endure.
The latest news, via those 100000% trustworthy ‘Sky Sources‘, is that the Everton centre-half has handed in a transfer requests at Goodison Park in order to push through his move to the Blues.
Chelsea have already made three bids for the 21-year-old, the last of which hit the £30million mark, which shows just how desperate Jose Mourinho is to get his hands on the England starlet.
Roberto Martinez has consistently denied that Stones, seen as a natural replacement for John Terry in Chelsea’s backline, is going anywhere but this latest apparent twist may well pave the way for the big-money move.
The hot-off-the-presses rumour that the Toffees have made a £5million bid for Tottenham centre-half Federico Fazio may also be a sign of things to come.
Surely this one is now going to happen?
