Friday’s biggest Chelsea news and transfer rumours.
Chelsea are prepared to bid up to £30m to land Everton’s England defender John Stones. But the Toffees hope interest from Manchester United in the 21-year-old will push the price up closer to their valuation of £34m, the London Evening Standard reports.
However, United are now said to be willing to offer cash plus Johnny Evans in order to land his signature.
Chelsea captain John Terry has backed new signing Radamel Falcao, 29, to succeed at Stamford Bridge, saying the striker – who was on-loan at Manchester United last season – was one of the best players he came up against last season, The Guardian reports.
John Terry insists fans of other Premier League clubs would love to have him in their side, the Daily Express explains.
Though he is one of the most decorated players in the Premier League, Terry hs garnered a reputation as somewhat of a pantomime villain.
