Stamford Bridge veteran on his way to the Nou Camp?
ASHLEY Cole could land a big money move to Barcelona in the summer.
The England international has fallen out with Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas.
And he will seek a quick exit in the summer – if Roman Abramovich decides to keep faith in the Portuguese coach.
Villas-Boas is adamant he still has the full backing of owner Abramovich and will wield the axe in the summer.

So Ashley Cole is not a happy man, will this lead to a Stamford Bridge exit? Well this source believes so. The 31 year old former Arsenal man was unhappy at being left out of Chelsea’s starting line-up for the crucial trip to Napoli, but soon found himself in action after Jose Bosingwa got injured early on, this has led to much speculation that he could be one of many of the Blues old guard who could be set to leave the West London club this summer.
Cole has been one of the most consistent performers at Chelsea over the years but if Andre Villas-Boas fails to secure a top four finish then perhaps the England international would be amenable to an exit from the club he joined in 2006?
Pep Guardiola may see Cole as a successor to Eric Abidal at left back but the Nou Camp boss is not known for bringing players who are at the tail end of their careers but could make an exception in this case as the Chelsea man is still at the top of his game.
Ashley Cole has racked up over 200 Chelsea appearances since his controversial move from Arsenal and is arguably one of the best, if not the best, left backs in the Premier League.
