Van Gaal pushing United to bid for Everton defender Stones

Everton defender John Stones is a priority target for Manchester United.

The Manchester Evening News says Louis van Gaal’s top target will remain Stones.

The Everton defender has been linked with a host of big-money moves away from Goodison Park over the course of the past year and United maintain their interest.

Money is no longer an issue for the Red Devils, as they sit primed to take the top spot in Deloitte’s Money Football League in the next 12 months.

It means that they will reportedly target Stones in a £45million deal.
