Manchester City got ahead of Chelsea after signing John Stones

Manchester City won the race of signing John Stones after offloading around €47 million in order to secure the services of the 22 year old English defender who was being tracked down by Chelsea for the past few transfer windows but despite launching offers of €25 million, it wasn’t enough for Chelsea to lure the highly rated player to Stamford Bridge.


Pep Guardiola is a manager that enjoys seeing his squad having control of the ball and feeling comfortable with it no matter what situation they might be in and this is one of the traits that John Stones is known for as he is a centre-back capable and willing to go upfront which is what the Spanish manager wants to have in his team.

Following his completion as a new signing of Manchester City, John Stones said during an interview: “I hope Guardiola can bring out everything in me. I always know that there’s a lot of improvement for my game personally. It’s 110 percent the right decision to play under him and I’m so thankful that I’m getting the opportunity to come here and play with the best and improve day in, day out.”

Man City News For New Season

There is more news rolling in as the new season is about to get started. If you look at Man City and Man United, the best comparisons are between the two managers of the club.


While Pep continues with Man City, Louis van Gaal was replaced by Jose Mourinho this year. Mourinho and Pep are up for comparisons. If you check their statistics, Mourinho has been around for longer, having managed 6 times till now, though his success rate comparing the number of matches won is lower than that of Guardiola by 6%. It remains to be seen how both managers work their teams up to be more successful than the other this season.

Among the different statistics for the City, around this time in 2010 David Silva had signed up for the City. If you look at the news of Premier League Sunderland will have David Moyes directing the team if Sam Allardyce is selected to manage England’s team. Among all the bids and transfers that are going on, the City would be bidding for Bayern Munich’s player Joshua Kimmich as Pep Guardiola would be looking to sign up this player who would help to strengthen the defensive side.
