Metro have a claim that Chelsea fans are looking rather concerned about here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The publication notes that one of their long serving players is losing the battle regarding his future at the club.
One of our punters notes that it clearly cannot be John Terry, given how badly Chelsea have missed the player since his injury spell, and it becomes clear that the player we are talking about is Ashley Cole.
Not only is the left back worrying about his future at club level but he is also concerned about his place in the England squad, and despite manager Jose Mourinho claiming that it will be better for his World Cup hopes to be fresh and rested, Cole knows only too well he needs first team action.
That is currently out of the question and it seems that should Chelsea tie up the purchase of Luke Shaw in the summer as well, it will become even harder for the player to break back into the side.
Cole is not short of options, with both former club Arsenal and also Liverpool linked with the defender, not to mention a host of big money sides both around Europe and also in the MLS.
Do you agree with us? Is Cole’s future at Stamford Bridge over? Let us know your thoughts below.
