Real Madrid and Barcelona are among the clubs that are fighting to sign Everton defender John Stones, according to the latest transfer rumours.

Many European giants have shown an interest in signing the Englishman, including Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.

Los Blancos have been eyeing Stones for the past few months, and two weeks ago it became known that they are preparing a bid to bring the Everton man next summer.

As it usually happens when Real Madrid show an interest in any player, Barcelona have quickly joined the race to sign him, possibly with the only goal of interfering in the negotiations.

The 21-year-old has proved to be a solid defender with a great future ahead. Any of the Spanish giants would benefit from signing him, but it want be easy for them to convince Everton.

The Liverpool side are not willing to let their star player leave, unless they receive an irresistible offer. Sources from Britain have revealed that Everton could agree to sell for 50 million euros. However, it seems unlikely that any of the two Spanish giants could reach that ammount.
