We've seen it with Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane in recent months, and now we've seen it with Everton and England defender John Stones.

The Toffees centre-back has been in fine form for Roberto Martinez's side for most of the season and it hasn't gone unnoticed by some big teams.

Reports in the Daily Mail this weekend suggest that Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea are all linked with a £50million move for the 21-year-old.

However, after his first-half performance against Swansea City at Goodison Park, we're not entirely sure he quite lives up to that price-tag.

A few misplaced passes later and fans took to Twitter to question is he really worth £50million and here are some of the best tweets:
