Chelsea star Ashley Cole has reportedly been offered an £8 million two-year deal to join Real Madrid in the summer, according to the Daily Mirror website
The Chelsea and England left-back will be a free agent at the end of this season, after failing to nail down his regular first team spot back from Cesare Azpilicueta.
Boss Jose Mourinho feels Azpilicueta is a better and more solid alternative to Cole, despite the Englishman being one of the best in the game.
A Bernabeu source said: “Ashley is a world class player and Madrid have wanted to sign him for some time.
“It is now the perfect opportunity as he is free.”
