Manchester City are considering a shock swoop for Chelsea star Ashley Cole in the summer.

A report from The Sunday Express claims Roberto Mancini is not satisfied with his current left-back options, Cole’s former Arsenal team-mate Gael Clichy and Aleksander Kolarov, so will attempt to lure him to the Etihad Stadium on a free transfer.

It also claims Chelsea and Cole have hit an impasse in talks over an extension to his current deal, which expires at the end of the season, and the likelihood of him leaving on a Bosman free transfer is growing.

Big-spending Ligue 1 side PSG are reportedly in the race to sign the Stamford Bridge defender, but this report says that is dependent on whether former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti can keep his job there – something it suggests is not so certain.

The 31-year-old moved to Chelsea in controversial circumstances are falling out with former club Arsenal, also over a new deal.

Now it appears he is set to move on once more and the report claims Mancini’s interest is growing, with him ready to challenge PSG to the England international’s signature.
