Chelsea to submit surprise bid for 6ft 2 Manchester City star?

Yaya ToureChelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are shocked to hear in the Sunday Express that they are set for a surprise swoop in the summer for Manchester City star Yaya Toure.

The Ivorian has been made a scapegoat throughout this season at the Etihad and he could look to prove his critics wrong at the Premier League champions in London.

It is believed Jose Mourinho is desperate to bring in a big name in the summer to maintain the positive momentum going throughout the summer as well as looking to add more competition for places.

Because their confidence will be sky high and the Portuguese tactician will want players to know their positions are up for grabs.

Mourinho is a huge admirer of the powerful midfielder and it would just boost their highly physical team.

City are supposedly only looking for £10m for the 32-year-old, despite paying Barcelona £24m for his services in 2010.

But if Mourinho can get the best out of him and help him rediscover his form, then it could be a smart move by the Blues boss.

Chelsea fans. Do you think Manchester City will let him join Chelsea? Let us know your thoughts below.
