Reports: Chelsea cleared to sign John Stones, they must pay £34m




Chelsea have been cleared to finally sign
Everton defender John Stones, according to
reports in Metro.
However, the news outlet claims that the Blues
must pay £34 million to get the centre-back.
Stones, 21, has been heavily linked with a move to
Stamford Bridge. The Blues' chase of the English
star has becoming something of a summer saga,
with both clubs openly commenting about the
potential transfer.
Only last week Everton boss Roberto Martinez
slammed Chelsea skipper John Terry for publically
backing the 21-year-old to become his successor,
as per the Telegraph.
Meanwhile, the Everton boss has continually
insisted to the press, as per the same Telegraph
report, that the 21-year-old is not for sale.

But Metro now report that despite the Toffees
being eager to hold onto Stones, they will allow
him to leave – if Chelsea make a £34 million bid.
The news outlet also claims that the Blues are
expected to agree to Everton's asking price and
shell out big money for the 21-year-old.
Metro say that Jose Mourinho is 'desperate' to
beat Manchester United to the signing of Stones.
Furthermore, the Blues will be boosted by reports,
as per the Daily Express, claiming that Stones
wants to join Chelsea this summer.

Meanwhile, Stones had a mixed game during
Everton's first clash of the Premier League
campaign against newly-promoted Leicester City
on Saturday.
Stones won 50% of his tackles and he also
completed 50% of his aerial duels as Everton drew
2-2 at Goodison Park. The 21-year-old completed
91% of his passes, too.
John Stones made six clearances during Everton's
clash with Watford yesterday.
