Chelsea's dream to sign main transfer target shattered as Spanish giants enter race


Barcelona have joined the race to sign Everton defender John Stones, the Daily Mail has reported.

Everton want at least £45million for the Englishman with the Spanish giants ready to offer around £25million for the central defender.

The 22-year-old was already a target for the Blues during last summer's transfer window but was convinced to stay by then-manager Roberto Martinez.

At the start of the year, Liverpool legend Alan Hansen told The Mirror that Barcelona would be the perfect club for the youngster.

"In a footballing sense, and this is purely a footballing consideration, Barcelona would be perfect for him," Hansen said.

"The way he plays, and the way they play, would be the ideal match-up.

"Yes, they have some unbelievable talents higher up the pitch, but they haven't lost a football match for five months because they don't give many goals away.

"From what I've seen, Stones has all the attributes, but when you read about clubs being prepared to spend £50 million on him, at this stage you are still paying for potential."
