There are rubies, emeralds, diamonds and then there is John Stones. The highly rated young defender is worth £40 million and is sure to dent any club’s budget he moves to, but he does hold a lot of promise.
The 22 year old struggled last season, but is still being courted by Premier League heavy weights. Now Gary Pallister, Manchester United legend, has urged Jose Mourinho to sign the player from Everton. He has backed the youngster to move past his bad form and keep on developing to become one of the finest young defenders. He has cited his early rise to fame and the pressure to deal with the expectation as the reason for his poor form.
Manchester United are looking for reinforcement at the back and if John Stones delivers on his promise, then he could be a fine signing for some years to come. Jose Mourinho is interested in the youngster and a bid could be expected.
