Everton supporters on Twitter have been reacting angrily to Jose Mourinho and Gary Cahill publicly discussing Chelsea’s bid for defender John Stones.
Blues defender Cahill told reporters on the trip to America that Stones would find it hard to turn down a move to Stamford Bridge, and manager Mourinho implied Everton were ‘a smaller club’ while talking about the proposed deal.
Toffees fans have been quick to criticise both Cahill and Mourinho for what they see is attempts to unsettle Stones.
What is Gary Cahill playing at?! It’s like they have signed stones! Serious lack of class #efc

Chelsea getting Cahill to talk about Stones is a disgrace.

Mourinho keeps digging doesn’t he where Stones is concerned. “smaller other clubs?” Kinda like Chelsea before they hit the lottery Jose? — TX Bill (@GOT_TXBill) July 22, 2015

Give Andreas Christensen 40 PL games at Everton and Chelsea would probably pay £30m for him as well. Start trusting your own. — Chelsea Youth (@chelseayouth) July 22, 2015
So another mammoth bid for John stones is imminent by #cfc. So we don’t want to give Kalas or Christensen a chance then?

Why would you pay +£20m for John Stones when you have Christensen loaned out and Zouma budding? — OVERLORD ® (@thatotistic) July 18, 2015
If a Christensen gets PL games he will be just as good as stones, if not better. We have to start trusting our young lads.

John Stones is a good defender but signing him for £30m is too much. Especially when we have Thomas Kalas, whom we loaned out. — ™Xperience (@Xperience_Snr) July 20, 2015
