There is a growing list for Ashley Cole’s services here in the Football Transfer Tavern and we are not shocked that the Daily Mirror think a world class club has joined the queue.
The publication seem to think that Manchester City are about to join the race for the full back who is certain to leave Chelsea this summer.
Of course as one of our punters notes, Cole is certainly not done yet and will relish a move to a side like Manchester City – who look set to lift the Premier League title while strengthening again in the summer.
One of our regulars even quips that it could be seen as a step up for Cole – given his current side are only finishing third this season!
Liverpool, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Ligue 1 giants Monaco have also been sniffing around Cole.
We think that it says a lot about the calibre of the player and indeed the faith that managers around the world still have in him that they are all top, top sides.
Most players would be looking at a list of clubs involving the likes of West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur; not Real Madrid!
Do you think Cole would consider a move up north to the Etihad Stadium? Let us know your thoughts below.
