Yaya agent touts Chelsea switch

Chelsea have been alerted after an agent of Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure admitted the player could leave the Etihad Stadium this summer.


The quotes will come as a shock to Citizens manager Roberto Mancini, but could surprise the Stamford Bridge club’s owner, Roman Abramovich, with a surprise transfer coup.


The agents's comments are surprising as Toure recently stated he wants the club to build on their dramatic last-gasp Premier League title win last Sunday.


“Toure has done all he can do at City and needs new motivations. He would like a new challenge. He would not cost much,” Dimitri Seluk said in an interview with Spanish radio.


“He could sign for many big clubs, like Chelsea or Bayern Munich. We would like to see Barcelona join the race.”


It is unclear if this is purely a ploy to get his client an improved contract, but City may be worried by the comments after Toure also recently stated a desire to return to the Catalan club one day.


City signed Toure from Barcelona in 2010 for fee of around £24million and he is reportedly one of the highest paid players in the squad.


The Ivory Coast international has been crucial in City winning their first league title in 44 years and would be a major blow if he has decided to leave the club at a time when many believe they will push on to a period of success.
