Can John Stones handle the pressure of his £47.5 million price-tag?

When John Stones first burst onto the scene with Everton as an up and coming home-grown centre-back with plenty of potential to go on and take the English game by storm, few initially saw much wrong with over-hyping the now 22-year-old defender as one of the brightest top-flight prospects in the entire country – as well as burdening the former Toffees man with a string of rather substantial transfer valuations that would soon amount to a staggering £47.5 million price-tag.

Maybe, just maybe…John Stones was little more than an average, hard-working centre-back to begin with…

 

 

…and if the calamities continue for the former Goodison Park favourite in the not too distant future…

 

 

 

…surely it’s only a matter of time before Pep Guardiola runs out of patience with the once remarkably sought after England international…
