Ashley Cole is looking to end his career with a move to Real Madrid and a reunion with former boss Jose Mourinho. The Chelsea full back and England international believes he has one last big move in him and has targeted a switch to either Barcelona or Real Madrid.
The 30 year old has more than two years to run on his £120,000-a-week deal at Stamford Bridge.
A source close to the footballer told The Mirror: "Ashley has told friends he sees his future abroad and he wants to persuade [ex-wife] Cheryl to come with him.
"It all boils down to what Cheryl wants, but the early signs are she would be up for the idea."
The player would also enjoy the benefits of the Spanish tax system which would see Cole retain more of his expected £150,000 per week salary.
