According to the ‘Daily Star’, the centre-back came close to packing up and leaving for Tottenham and had the go-ahead from Manchester City, but did not want to move to London.
John Stones will continue to fight for success at Manchester City, even though Pep Guardiola seems to have lost all confidence in him.
City’s new transfers for the defence leave Stones almost without any chance of playing, for that reason, the ‘Daily Star’ indicated that Tottenham tried to sign him at the last minute.
Spurs asked for a loan and Pep Guardiola gave his approval to loan the player to Mourinho. However, it was the Stones himself who didn’t want to move to London and preferred to stay in Manchester.
Now, the footballer faces a complicated season, although it is possible that he leaves to a league that has not yet closed their market like Portugal, where Porto signed Malang Sarr this Tuesday.
