Stamford Bridge star targeted by Eastlands boss.
Roberto Mancini will attempt an audacious swoop to bring Chelsea left back Ashley Cole to Eastlands this summer. The England international has reportedly been upset at the way he has been treated by Stamford Bridge boss Carlo Ancelotti following his alleged extra marital affairs and this could spark a melee for the former Arsenal man.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are also both considering moves for the 29 year old only returned from a lengthy spell out on the weekend. The Manchester City boss is ready to make an attractive bid in the region of £20m to secure Cole’s services and whilst Chelsea will be loathed to accept any bid for the defender they may also feel that there is no point in keeping a player who is supposedly unhappy at the club.
Clearly Ashley Cole is no stranger to controversial transfers and would presumably not think twice about making a move to a Premier League rival if indeed he feels hard done by. Manchester City boss Mancini is looking to bring in new faces this summer and believes the capture of talented left back would be quite a coup and one that would further push their case as genuine Premier League title candidates.
