On Friday, we saw reports that Chelsea had made a substantial bid for Everton defender John Stones. The Toffees' manager, Roberto Martinez, didn't seem pleased to be speaking about those rumors following the club's pre-season match against Arsenal on Saturday:

I'm not surprised that Martinez is irritated, as even though Stones said all the right things following the leak yesterday, there's still no good that can come of the reports from Everton's perspective. That said, I'm not an Everton fan, so I really don't care if the leak actually came from Chelsea, instead of the player's agent, which seems equally plausible in this instance.

Fiorentina management has yet to weigh in on the matter, but may want another Chelsea player on loan before they'll give their approval.
