John Stones career history until 2021
This FM 2015 player profile of John Stones shows a rock-solid young central defender, he can become one of the best centre backs in the Premier League. Buying him at the start of the game is quite costly though, especially since patch 15.3.
In my test save Manchester United bought him for 19 million in 2016 but he was well worth it, he turned in excellent seasons at Old Trafford if you judge by the average ratings. He developed into a central defender that has both strength and speed, very good mental attributes and solid tackling, marking and heading. Moreover, he managed to become natural as a right back as well. He also became a regular in the England national team, he amassed 61 caps before October 2021.
His good passing and technique make him a good candidate for a ball-playing defender role at the start of the game.
