Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is making a sensational DOUBLE raid on Chelsea. The Daily Star says Ferguson will offer Frank Lampard AND Ashley Cole the chance to join Manchester United when they are dumped by Chelsea.

United boss Ferguson wants both players at Old Trafford next season - and is putting together packages to complete an amazing double deal for the Stamford Bridge rejects.

Both Lampard and Cole are out of contract at the end of June and Fergie believes the pair can make a huge impact on and off the pitch at United.

The Scot even considered trying to sign the pair during this month's transfer window but Chelsea are unwilling to do business with any other Premier League clubs.

So Fergie is prepared to wait until the summer, when he will offer the duo one-year rolling contracts which will allow them to continue playing at the highest level.
