Ashley Cole

Chelsea defender Ashley Cole has been attracting interest from abroad, with Real Madrid plotting a move for him in the summer.

According to The Sunday People, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez will make a move for the England full-back at the end of the season, with coach Carlo Ancelotti looking to bring his former player to Spain.

The 33-year-old’s contract will expire at the end of this season, and although he has been out of favour at Stamford Bridge this season, losing his place to Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta, Chelsea are looking to hand him a one-year-contract extension.

Real Madrid have been linked with Sevilla defender Alberto Moreno recently, but it seems Cole also features in their transfer short list.

The La Liga giants are willing to hand Cole a two-year contract with an option of extending for third year, should he fulfil the criteria of number of appearances in the 2015-16 campaign.

Cole was one of the key players for Ancelotti during the Italian’s tenure at Stamford Bridge, and was a part of the Blues’ double winning side in 2010.
