England star turns down massive opportunity to join Barcelona

John Stones turned down a move to Barcelona because is due to move to Manchester City, it has been reported by the Daily Mail.

Stones has been linked with a move to Barcelona for a long period of time, but the Mail have reported that Stones is believed by Barcelona to be moving to Manchester City after he turned down a healthy contract offer from the Catalan club.

The Everton defender is currently at Euro 2016 but experienced a dip in form towards the second half of the campaign, but it appears that his failure to perform at a consistently high level hasn’t damaged the interest of the world’s biggest clubs.

As Manchester United recently signed one of the best young defenders in Eric Bailly, it looks like Manchester City are aiming to match their local rivals with the acquisition of Everton’s superstar defensive ball-player. Could this move spell the end for Mangala?
