Chelsea manager José Mourinho revealed that the London club can give up in the race for Everton’s defender John Stones.
The Toffees already rejected two offers by the Blues ( £20m and £25m plus some add-ons) and also Manchester United and Manchester City joined the race for the young centre-back: although Everton claims the defender is not on the market, their goal is to sell him for £34m.
That’s why Chelsea are keen to give up in the race, as Mourinho explained:
“The market sometimes has no rules,” he told to the press.
“We, as Chelsea, we make our own rules.
“To make our own rules is to evaluate the players, and to know the players’ value, and to know when we have to stop and turn to another side, and think in another option”.
