Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole is poised to ‘end his personal hell’ in England (which, in fairness, is mostly of his own making) with a £30 million move to Real Madrid, according to the Spanish giant’s iconic ‘keeper himself, Iker Casillas.
The World Cup-winning stopper is quoted in this morning’s Sun as saying;
“From what I am hearing the signs look good. I have only briefly spoken to people at the club but I am confident that he can be a Real Madrid player next year.
I think it will be the right move for him both professionally and personally.”
Cole has endured a tabloid sh*tstorm after revealing himself as a world-class pr*ck on multiple occasions over the past few years, and Casillas seems to think that reuniting with his former coach Jose Mourinho at the Bernabeu will do the England defender the world of good;
“It will be his last big contract and who better to sign for than his old coach Mourinho at Real. He will know better than anybody this club will be successful under Jose.
Jose has proved he buys players and makes them the very best in the world in their position. With Ashley he doesn’t need to do that because he’s already the best left-back in the world.
Jose knows all about him and it comes as no surprise to me he is very much on Madrid’s radar.”
