Paul Pogba and John Stones, neither of whom are any good
I find it hard to believe that Guardiola has that big a stiffy for John Stones, they've probably got several John Stones in Spain that would cost a fraction of that.
Not really to be honest, if you are looking for ball playing CB. Their equivalent of Stones would be probably Aymeric Laporte, definitely better all around defender (I know you don't care about ball playing crap, I don't either to some level) and number #1 transfer target for City... but he broke his leg around Spring and later sign a new contract with Bilbao. He would cost 40m euro, so cheaper, but still quite crazy.
Cheaper version of Stones is probably Marc Bartra who moved to Dortmund after a few years of polishing bench at Barca. But at least his price was more reasonable 8m euro.

Never hear about either of Love guys (GTA or United), but McNair seems decent from what I've seen of him. Probably will do better than this African guy bought from Chelsea after playing for them 1 minute

Didn't someone from United have a history with Moyes daughter? Zaha? I guess it was time for a new one
