They may be set to meet in the FA Cup semi-finals, but the Daily Express make a claim that has the Football Transfer Tavern more interested in the future of Yaya Toure than the outcome of the game at Wembley.
Chelsea are apparently set to test the water with an ambitious bid for the midfielder who only recently claimed his unhappiness at the club and noted that it was only Roberto Mancini who valued his skills and contributions to the team.
Now a host of suitors have come forward in an attempt to try and land one of the best players around. Real Madrid are also keeping tabs on the Ivorian with Jose Mourinho a big fan of the player. Add to this the uncertainty of Xabi Alonso’s future and you could well have a bid from the Spanish giants in the summer.
Paris Saint-Germain are also making sure they are fully informed of the midfielder’s situation and should the door be opened for a bid, the mega-rich Ligue 1 club will certainly throw their hats into the ring.
Chelsea clearly face a great deal of competition to land the player and that is before anyone even considers the fact that Manchester City would be mad to let the midfielder leave despite the player’s contract talks reaching a point of impasse.
Can Chelsea pull off a surprise swoop for Toure? Rate this rumour below.
