Chelsea defender Ashley Cole has been offered an enormous contract by Real Madrid, reports the Mirror.
The 33-year-old left-back’s contract expires in the summer, and Chelsea are yet to offer the England international an extension to his deal.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti worked with Cole during his time at Stamford Bridge, and is interested in taking advantage of Cole’s contract situation. Madrid apparently want to offer Cole a two year deal, which will keep him with the club until he’s 35.
The Spanish giants currently have the exceptional Marcelo at the back, but Cole could provide very good cover, and arguably a defensively more solid option at the back.
Cole will no doubt be keen to move on after losing his place in Chelsea’s starting XI to Cesar Azpilicueta,. The fullback has only made 12 starts all year, and Jose Mourinho doesn’t want to offer the left-back lucrative new terms.
