Real Madrid and AS Monaco may also move for the experienced defender this summer.
Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole is targeting a lucrative two-year at a club competing in next season’s Uefa Champions League as the Englishman weighs up all his options for next season having recently left Stamford Bridge, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.

The former England international’s contract at the west London club runs out at the end of next month, but with Cole having not been offered a new deal at the Blues to extend his eight-year stay in the capital, the player is now free to start exploring his options elsewhere.
And it is understood that the 33-year-old is now determined to prove his former employers were wrong for ditching him by joining a club that is competing in next season’s Uefa Champions League, with Cole wanting a bumper two-year contract as he is now available on a Bosman free transfer.
As a result, both Premier League champions Manchester City and Liverpool are said to be keen on landing the full back this summer, especially the Reds who themselves are in need of a new left back and could even offer Cole a deal worth £130,000 per week to move to Anfield.
