Ashley Cole Set To Join Real Madrid For £30m

Ashley Cole is set to end his English hell with a £30million move to Real Madrid. Defender Cole, 29, looks certain to team up with his former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho at the Bernabeu.

Real's World Cup-winning keeper Iker Casillas revealed: "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."

Chelsea left-back Cole has become a figure of hate since splitting with wife Cheryl and being exposed sending a message to pals saying he hated England and the people. Mourinho signed Cole for Chelsea from Arsenal in 2006.

Spain stopper Casillas, 29, added: "A clean break from England is hopefully something he is very interested in. 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," Casillas admitted
