Real Madrid boss Mourinho targets Chelsea midfielder Essien

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is chasing Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien. Marca says Mourinho plans to sell Fernando Gago and Lassana Diarra and wants a new 'SUV' midfielder - his No1 choice is Essien.

Chelsea's asking price is the stumbling block, with Real being informed it will take €40 million to land the 28 year-old Ghana ace.

Also under consideration for Mourinho is Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila and Juventus's Momo Sissoko.
