Jose Mourinho is ready to plead with Chelsea chiefs to encourage them to make a strong bid to land Manchester City star Yaya Toure this year, following rumours that he is unhappy at the Etihad.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claims that despite the speculation linking Toure with a return to Barcelona, the idea isn’t one that is feasible and instead there’s a far greater chance he could trade City for another Premier League side. Following issues arising over the club’s apparent lack of love for Toure the player’s agent released a statement which indicated his client would be prepared to leave the club in search of pastures new. The 31-year-old then backed up these statements himself, which further put his City future in doubt.

Now, Spanish sources claim that Mourinho is keen to take advantage of the confusion between the Ivorian superstar and his club, and will do his best to convince Chelsea to lodge a formal offer. The Special One is thought to be desperate to ensure that his squad are ready to challenge on all fronts next season, and the acquisition of Toure would ensure just that.

The influential midfielder grabbed himself 20 goals in the Premier League this campaign and was a major driving force behind his side’s clinching of the English title. Were he to switch Manchester for west London it would not only weaken City dramatically, but would also give Chelsea a massive boost in their hunt for major trophies.
