Real Madrid is the latest club linked with a possible move for highly rated English defender, John Stones. The Everton center-back was a subject of keen interest from Chelsea last summer. After more impressive performances this season, the 21-year-old has attracted interest from more clubs such as Barcelona and Real Madrid.
According to the Daily Mail, Real Madrid’s former manager, Rafa Benitez had issued a ‘go and get him’ plea to the management of the club before his sack.
John Stones is touted to be one of the best young defenders in Europe and is valued at about £40million by Everton. That huge asking price is reportedly what’s discouraging Real Madrid’s rivals, Barcelona from making a bid for John Stones.
