Ancelotti not about to let Cole leave Chelsea

Ashley Cole is definitely not leaving Chelsea according to manager Carlo Ancelotti. The England left-back has been heavily linked with a move to join former Blues boss Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid but Ancelotti insists he will be going nowhere this summer.

"I'm not interested in the relationship my player has with other coaches," said Ancelotti. "It's normal that Mourinho has a good relationship with Ashley Cole.

"Nothing has changed in our position. He is a Chelsea player and will remain a Chelsea player for the future. There's no way he will leave. Everyone can forget that Ashley Cole will leave this club.

"There is no price, there is no price. We believe he's the best left-back in the world and because of this he will stay at the club."
