Man City stunned by £50M Everton valuation for Barkley

Everton slapped a £50 million price-tag Ross Barkley this summer.

The Sunday Mirror says Manchester City ditched a plan to sign Barkley after being told it would take a bid of more than £50million to tempt Everton to sell.

City were willing to go to £30m - and were offering additional payments should Barkley realise his huge potential.

A City insider said: "Barkley was seen as one of the few homegrown English players in the world game who would improve the squad."
