The race to land Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole has swung in Real Madrid’s favour if the Sun on Sunday is to be believed.
Britain’s biggest selling red-top announce that Ashley Cole has been offered an attractive deal to swap Stamford Bridge for the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
Cole’s current deal at Chelsea expires at the end of the season, meaning that the 33-year-old will become a free agent when the season closes.
Recent weeks have seen Liverpool and Arsenal linked with Cole, together with rumours that Chelsea may offer the defender a new deal, but now the Sun on Sunday say Real Madrid want the England full-back.
According to Antony Kastrinakis, a hack with a poor record of knowing what’s up, “Ashley Cole has been offered an £8million two-year deal to join Real Madrid in the summer. The Chelsea left-back is a free agent in the summer and Real boss Carlo Ancelotti is a big fan.”
