‘Hope This Is True’ ‘City Scouts Need To Be Fired’ Fans Discuss Claims That 26 Year Old Has Been Offered To Chelsea For 20M

Manchester City have offered centre-back John Stones to Chelsea for £20m, according to reports in the England media. It is believed that a move could indeed happen, although there is thought to be some negotiations needed over personal terms.

The 26-year-old is certainly quite a way down the pecking order at the Etihad but taking a £30m hit on a defender they paid £50m for only four years ago would be a surprise. Supporters on Twitter have been debating the merits of the deal:

Even though City are likely to be open to selling Stones, it would be a shock if the England international was sold for such a low figure. There is said to be a lot of interest in the player, with Arsenal and West Ham having been mentioned as potential destinations previously.

Of course, the global health crisis will impact finances to some extent but, even so, it’s unlikely that the Citizens would be prepared to take such a sizeable hit in offloading the centre-half.
