Stones' new clause forthcoming?
Chelsea might have ultimately suffered humiliation when they were repeatedly rebuffed by Everton in their attempts to sign John Stones this summer, but the player might become a Blues star yet.
The latest information on the subject - courtesy of the Daily Mail - is that Stones is going to request a £38million buyout clause in a new Everton contract - one that would render his current club helpless if Chelsea return to the bidding next year.
The summer’s consensus was that the England international wanted to move to Stamford Bridge, but that Roberto Martinez and co. wouldn’t let him. It appears even Jose Mourinho’s magic has its limits sometimes.
Meanwhile, former Chelsea ace Emmanuel Petit has revealed he regrets his decision to join the Blues ahead of Manchester United.
The Frenchman said opting for west London had been a personal choice, not a sporting one, but implied that given the chance again he’d head the other way.
Petit didn’t manage to accrue any silverware during his time at Stamford Bridge, instead watching Sir Alex Ferguson’s United claim the Premier League and the FA Cup. Perhaps that's why he's miffed.
Elsewhere the backlash from Jose Mourinho’s decision to suspend club doctor Eva Carneiro continues to rage on, with it now purported that the 41-year-old is considering suing the club.
The Special One must be regretting his actions with regards to Carneiro, who has had widespread support after being berated by Mourinho for coming onto the field to treat Eden Hazard during Chelsea’s draw with Swansea City last month.
