Italian wants to sign Blues star – regardless of where he is boss.
Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is desperate for a reunion with Ashley Cole – and it could be at Real Madrid, reports the Daily Mirror.

Ancelotti wants to bring Blues defender Cole to current club PSG but the Italian is under pressure at the mega-bucks Ligue 1 club and could get the chop.
The Parc des Princes outfit want to bring Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho to Paris and, ironically, Ancelotti is on Real’s shortlist to replace to Portuguese if, as seems inevitable, he is sacked this summer.
Speculation of a manager swap may seem farfetched but Ancelotti has reportedly told PSG to sign Cole and if he leaves for Real Madrid he will inform Los Blancos supremo Florentino Perez to do the same.
Cole, 32, is almost certain to leave Stamford Bridge this summer after falling foul of owner Roman Abramovich’s absurd over-30s policy.
The Russian is only willing to offer the 99-cap England international a one-year deal and an angry Cole has already decided to join Frank Lampard in seeking pastures new at the end of this season.
