Chelsea fullback Cole tells Ancelotti he wants Real Madrid move

Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole wants a move to Real Madrid.

The News of the World says Cole had a 20-minute heart-to-heart with manager Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea's training ground after reporting back last week.

And the 29-year-old England full-back stressed he feels he needs to leave the club now and move abroad to link up with former boss Jose Mourinho in the wake of his marriage break-up with pop star wife Cheryl and lurid stories about his personal life.

A source close to Chelsea revealed: "It was a very amicable meeting, but Ashley made it clear that because of his personal situation he feels it is in his best interests to leave the club.

"He told Ancelotti that he will be very sad to leave and that it had been a privilege playing for the club during such a successful time in its history."
