Real Madrid have offered exit-bound Chelsea star Ashley Cole a two-year contract worth an incredible £10million, according to the Metro.
Honing in on reports from earlier today which claimed that the English full-back had received as many as eight offers to leave Stamford Bridge when his contract expires this summer, the Metro have specified that Madrid have put an impressive offer on the table as Carlo Ancelotti wants Cole at the Santiago Bernabeu. Neither Marcelo nor Fabio Coentrao have managed to dominate the left-back berth in the Spanish capital, and Ancelotti knows first-hand how reliable Cole is from his time spent at Chelsea between 2009 and 2011.
Cole’s position with his current club is becoming increasingly untenable, which only stands to increase the chances that he may take Madrid up on their proposal. Whilst John Terry has already been offered an extension, and one for Frank Lampard is believed to be in the offing, the 33-year-old full-back isn’t thought to have the backing of the board, and has failed to hold down a regular spot in Jose Mourinho’s first-team throughout this campaign.
Whilst there will undoubtedly be a great many offers put before his nose before the summer is up, surely the opportunity to finish his career as a Galactico would be enough to tempt Cole to Spain?
