Manchester United have done some good business this summer window, bringing in several quality players in key areas on the field. One position that still needs some work is the centre-back slot, but that could all be about to change.
According to ESPN sources, Manchester United are set to challenge Everton’s resolve as a bid for John Stones could be on the cards.
Louis van Gaal is prepared to offer The Toffees a ready-made replacement for Stones as part of the deal, as Manchester United look to use Jonny Evans as a make-weight to try and reduce the fee somewhat.
The 21-year old still wouldn’t come cheap though, and Chelsea are still in prime position to land the talented centre-half, but Everton will try to dig their heels in and either keep hold of the youngster or get a huge transfer fee for the former Barnsley man.
