Sunday rumour mill: Roberto Mancini to make move for Chelsea star

Ashley Cole

Galatasaray are eager to bring Ashley Cole to Turkey in the summer, if a report in The Sunday Mirror is to be believed.

Ashley Cole’s future at Chelsea looks more and more bleak, with the England international struggling for game time at Stamford Bridge.

With the experienced left-back’s contract in west London expiring in the summer, a number of suitors are queuing up to sign the defender.

The latest side thought to be keen to add Cole to their squad ahead of next season is Galatasaray, according to a report in The Sunday Mirror.

Roberto Mancini is an admirer of the full-back and is eyeing up a bargain by potentially signing Cole on a free transfer.

Monaco and Liverpool have both been linked with the player also.

The report states that Galatasaray want to link Cole up with former Chelsea team-mate Didier Drogba ahead of next season.
