‘£30 Million and He’s Yours!’ ‘200M. They Have The Money’ Fans On Social Media Welcome Newcastle’s Interest In City Star

Newcastle’s new owners will target homegrown players as part of their recruitment strategy and Manchester City’s John Stones is on their list of targets, according to reports.

It is said that the Citizens would be open to selling the 25-year-old if a bid of £40m is made for the centre-back. There is some debate on Twitter as to how much the club should hold out for:

Stones has had a difficult season with form and injuries, and it would not be a surprise if he were allowed to leave in the summer with manager Pep Guardiola reportedly planning an overhaul of his defence.

Arsenal have also been linked with the England international in recent months, with Mikel Arteta believed to be keen on taking him to the Emirates. However, the Gunners are not likely to have the cash required to meet City’s valuation.

Newcastle, on the other hand, would have more than enough to match the asking price. Whether they’ll make a formal offer, we shall have to wait and see.
