Chelsea hoping to beat Barcelona and Real Madrid to £50 Million star

Chelsea are reportedly gearing up to go into battle to sign Everton star John Stones.

The Premier League side will be going up against La Liga giants, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Last summer Everton turned down a £38 Million bid from Chelsea for the centre half, this may be what has prompted The Blues to up their previous bid to £50 Million.

Real Madrid first showed interest in the player, under the management of Rafa Benitez. This interest has not waned since his sacking with the club said to be as eager as ever to secure the 21 year olds signature.

It is unsure at the moment if Barcelona will continue their pursuit of the youngster, with such a hefty price tag attached to him.
