Reports have revealed Jose Mourinho may be planning to throw Ashley Cole a Chelsea lifeline after revealing he plans to hold further talks with the defender.
Cole, whose Chelsea contract expires this month, has been expected to depart Stamford Bridge, as there are rumours the Portuguese boss is looking for a more long-term left-back.
However, Mourinho has hinted there may still be a chance for the left-back to remain in west London.
As quoted on the Metro website, he said: “With Frank Lampard I spoke a couple of weeks before the end of the Premier League, with Ashley I didn’t get that chance.
“They are different situations. I want to see what is going on, what is going to happen. But I will speak to him.”
