Jose Mourinho surely can't land Yaya Toure

Jose Mourinho and Roman Abramovich have certainly had an extremely busy transfer period at Chelsea so far this summer. Spanish superstar Cesc Fabregas has already been signed, whilst his international teammate Diego Costa looks set to follow him to the club in the very near future. 

But, as the window heats up, one of the most surprising rumours to date has surfaced today: Chelsea and Manchester United are interested in Manchester City superstar Yaya Toure.

Whilst, it's seemingly impossible for Manchester United to sign the Ivorian midfielder, surely Mourinho doesn't stand a chance of landing him either, does he? 

Just imagine it: Toure, Fabregas and Matic operating the middle of the park, whilst Oscar, Hazard and Costa roam free in attack. Manchester City just won't let it happen: they would ultimately be surrendering their title. 


In fact, if the Citizens let Toure, who is arguably their best player, depart for Chelsea then it would represent the biggest shock of the summer. Toure has for a number of years now proven his worth in the Premier League and has been a force to be reckoned with at the Etihad. 

Mourinho may well be interested, but he's also realistic and will no that it's extremely unlikely he will get his hands on the superstar anytime soon. The Blues may well have lost the likes of Frank Lampard and David Luiz, but the trio of Matic, Fabregas and Ramires should just about tie them over. 

City must keep him 

City, on the other hand, just can't afford to let him anyone for that matter. Along with Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero, Toure has been the catalyst of the club's success in recent time - and he won't be replaced easily.

Alongside Fernandinho last term - in a season City claimed the Premier League title - he had one of his best campaigns yet as he scored goals for fun from the middle of the park. He may not be happy about it, but he has a contract at the Etihad, so can't just jump ship. 

He will get over his current sulk...most players do. Manuel Pellegrini needs to man manage his prize asset and prove to him that the Etihad is the place to be. Offer him a birthday cake or something, Manuel.
