Controversial Manchester United target blowing transfer chance

Manchester United defender target Ashley Cole could be in-line for a large fine and lengthy ban after venting his anger at the Football Association on Twitter.

The England international was responding to the release of an FA report, which called into question the defender’s change of evidence in John Terry’s racial abuse case against Anton Ferdinand.

Chelsea captain Terry was found not guilty by a Magistrates Court, but handed a four-game ban and given a £220,000 fine by the heads of English football.

Cole tweeted: "Hahahahaa, well done #fa, I lied did I #BUNCHOFTWATS"

The tweet has since been deleted, and an apology followed soon after. However, the damage at Stamford Bridge has already been done, with Roberto Di Matteo immediately fielding tough questions in his press conference.

His remarks come just days after a transfer link to Manchester United, with an ESPN insider revealing that Sir Alex Ferguson still had the player on his radar.

"Manchester United cannot be discounted from the equation,” he said.

“There are plenty of interested clubs, and Manchester United might well be one of them."

The Red Devils had been linked with a move for Cole in the summer, but it’s now hard to see Ferguson bringing the player to Old Trafford, given the Scotsman’s stance on Twitter.
