The City star is “90 per cent certain” to leave the club this summer, according to his agent Dimitri Seluk, and he has reportedly confirmed that Chelsea have shown an interest.
Jose Mourinho is thought to be an admirer of Toure, who scored twice in City’s 4-2 win over Swansea on Sunday, and the Blues could make a shock £10 million for the powerful midfielder.
Inter Milan have also expressed a keen interest in signing the 32-year-old star as a reunion with Roberto Mancini looks to be a real possibility.
All signs point towards a City exit and the club will use the transfer fee and his huge wages in excess of £200,000-a-week to rebuild the squad ahead of next season.
The Citizens have fallen short of Chelsea this season, with the Blues winning the title for the first time in five years, and a move to Stamford Bridge for Toure would certainly hurt City fans.
Mourinho will look to strengthen his Chelsea squad this summer with quality signings as they look to dominate English football for the long run, and Yaya Toure could be one of the first names on the Portuguese coach’s shortlist.
Would Yaya Toure leave Manchester City to join Chelsea? Would he be a good signing for Chelsea?
