The same report says Everton will use the money generated from the Stones sale to make sure it lands Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli.
The price tag would be $60 million, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The England centre-half has held talks with manager Ronald Koeman and informed him of his intention to quit Goodison this summer.
And the ECHO understands that Stones wants to begin his pre-season training at City with Pep Guardiola.
The funny thing about the move is that there is simply no guarantee Stones reaches Koulibaly’s level, and it would be a sign that Ronald Koeman will pick up at Everton where he’s left off at Southampton (although Koulibaly is said to cost in the same neighborhood as Stones).
