Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to launch a swoop for Ashley Cole according to reports from British radio station, TalkSPORT.

The England international arrived at Stamford Bridge from Arsenal in 2006 and has since gone on to play almost 200 games for Chelsea, however, it is understood the 30-year-old is reluctant to sign a new one-year deal that has been offered by owner Roman Abramovich and it has been claimed French side PSG are ready to offer him a bumper deal to reunite him with another former Chelsea manager, Carlo Ancelotti.

According to TalkSPORT, however, reports in Spain claim Real Madrid boss Mourinho wants Cole at the Santiago Bernabeu and it is said the La Liga champions could be ready to mount a £7 million move for the player when the next transfer window opens in January.

With youngster Ryan Bertrand recently signing a five-year extension at Chelsea, sources say the current European champions are ready to make him their first choice left back – leaving Cole with an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge.
