Everton Rumours

City set for summer Barkley swoop

stones and barkleyAccording to reports in the media this morning, Manchester City are planning to test Everton resolve over Ross Barkley in the summer.

Barkley has had an indifferent season with the Blues, but is still seen as a promising talent and City are said to be ready to offer big cash to lure him away.

Everton’s valuation is unlikely to have changed from last season, however, with Roberto Martinez jokingly saying that even £50m wouldn’t be enough to make him sell the 21 year old.

With City set to offer half of that amount according to reports, it is unlikely Everton will want to sell unless the England international actively asks for a move, especially given the huge poster of Barkley being sent out with new season ticket marketing materials.
