Man Utd boss Ferguson determined to land Chelsea winger Cole

Manchester United are ready to compete for released Chelsea winger Joe Cole.

The Manchester Evening News says Ferguson has been monitoring Cole since contract negotiations stalled at the start of the year.

But he faces stiff competition from Arsenal, Tottenham and Juventus, who are all chasing the free agent.

Cole will be officially available on July 1.

Ferguson believes his versatility could make him a crucial part of his plans to wrest the Premier League title back from Chelsea.

The biggest threat to United's hopes of landing Cole is his desire to stay in London.

But he is also desperate to add to the three titles he has won at Chelsea as well as lift the Champions League for the first time, which could give United the edge.
