The players that Mourinho wants to replace Cole.
After signing Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona and being on the verge of acquiring Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa, it’s clearly going to be a summer of change at Chelsea.
Their manager Jose Mourinho wants to further put his own stamp on the team and one key priority will be replacing the departing Ashley Cole.
The 33-year-old has confirmed that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer when his current contract expires, after eight years of success with the Blues.
Therefore Mourinho needs to find an alternative for Cole and here are five transfer targets for the West Londoners.
Filipe Luis, Atletico Madrid
There seems to be a slight obsession with stars of the Vicente Calderon Stadium and the Blues currently, with Costa among a number of their players linked with the English capital.
Filipe was a stalwart in the side as they won La Liga and reached the Champions League final in 2013/14 and the 28-year-old has bags of experience.
