Chelsea owner Abramovich plans £300,000-a-week offer to Man City's Toure
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to rattle Manchester City with a move for Yaya Toure. The Daily Star says Abramovich is ready to make unsettled Manchester City star Toure the best-paid player in the world in order to tempt him to Stamford Bridge.
The 29-year-old recently expressed doubts about his future at City, claiming that he was looking for a new challenge.
"The player gave everything he could for City and now needs a new motivation," said the Ivory Coast international's agent Dimitri Seluk.
Abramovich is ready to sanction a £300,000 per week wage packet for the star, to put him in line with football's top-earner, Anzhi Makhachkala star Samuel Eto'o.
