Jose Mourinho reportedly wants to take Manchester City’s David Silva to Real Madrid and is willing to splash £30million in doing so.

The Sun are reporting that the former Chelsea boss is convinced the Citizens’ playmaker is the man to add some extra creativity to his La Liga winning side.

Roberto Mancini would be loath to lose his most influential playmaker, especially now he is plotting City’s defence of their Premier league title, won so dramatically in the final minutes of last season.

The report claims Real were also interested in signing Silva before he made the £24million move to the Etihad Stadium two years ago.

Mourinho’s move to Madrid from Inter Milan was said to have put the potential deal with Valencia on hold, which allowed City to step in and snap up the Spain international.

Silva is currently away with Spain squad at Euro 2012 and has been impressive in the initial fixtures of the Spaniards’ defence of their European crown.
