Released Chelsea star to continue his career in Ligue 1?

Ashley ColePremier League clubs may have to realise that they will not be able to tempt Ashley Cole into staying in England.

The Daily Express has confirmed what our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern have been thinking for a while.

The publication has claimed that the former Chelsea defender is set to make a switch to Ligue 1 and the tax free haven that is Monaco – and given the money he will make whilst there, we cannot blame him.

As the regulars in the tavern were telling anyone who would listen last night, Cole should have been on the field playing for England, not tweeting about the game at home!

Monaco are playing Champions League football and will carry on buying top players until they realise their ambitions of being not only domestic winners but also champions of Europe. We think that adding Cole to their ranks will help them to do just that.

Of course, this news has not gone down too well with Liverpool fans, who thought that they might be in line with landing the player.

Chelsea fans. Is this the right move for Cole or do you think another Premier League club should have come in and taken the player on a one year deal – more to the point, should you have offered him one? Let us know your thoughts below.
