English Premier League side Chelsea who are current holders of the premiership trophy have been poor this season and they sit on the 16th position on the Barclay’s Premiership table. This run of poor form has been largely blamed on the Chelsea defence.
Manager Jose Mourinho may however have found the key to resolving this in Everton’s young centre-back John Stones who they made offers for in the summer tranfer window but were rejected repeatedly.
Mourinho has however recently suggested that he will go back for the player in January as his defence is still very shaky and just horrible at the moment which makes them concede in every game they play.
Chelsea recently backed Mourinho when they clearly stated that they are happy with the manager and do not plan on removing him anytime soon despite his bad run of form.
The club has apparently decided to back the manager up in other ways too as they are ready to give Mournho the backing to make a £36 million move for Everton’s John Stones by the January transfer window.
The 21-year-old was also very keen to join Chelsea as he too submmitted a transfer request to Everton to force his transfer away from the club but the club rejected and the player has since then settled at Everton and done his best everytime he goes on the pitch.
Chelsea might have realized that they desperately need a player like John Stones as they have already conceded 17 goals in 8 games in the premiership and yet had the best defensive record last year. The ‘bus parking’ technique just seems to have failed Chelsea and the bus looks to be coming apart at the moment.
Captain John Terry has obviously done enough for the team and Gary Cahill seems to be getting tired too and these two are the main centre-backs for Chelsea, so it is quite obvious that this team needs a new and younger centre-back.
John Stones is perfect for Chelsea and he might be arriving by January but it remains to be seen if Everton will be ready to release him.
