Ashley Cole to snub Arsenal & rivals for European switch

Published 4 Comments

Chelsea full-back Ashley Cole looks set for a European switch this summer, according to The Daily Mail.

If reports are to be believed, the veteran - who runs out of his £130,000-a-week contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of next month - doesn't want to move to one of Chelsea's rivals this summer, out of respect for their fans. 

And this news will come as a blow to the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham, who have both been credited with interest in the player's services. 

Cole - a former Arsenal player - has a whole host of European clubs after him, and will now have to decide where he wants to play his football for the 2014/15 campaign.

The likes of Monaco, Real Madrid and AC Milan have all been linked with the Chelsea star in recent time. It now appears that that the 33-year-old will will decide on his future after returning from holiday. 

The Chelsea man was left out of Roy Hodgson's squad for this summer's World Cup, so can fully concentrate on his club future over the coming months. 

It certainly looks unlikely that the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham will get their hands on the Blues ace, but it remains to be seen as to which club he eventually opts for.
