Real Madrid to bid for Chelsea fullback Cole with Coentrao out of picture

Real Madrid are ready to move for Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole.

AS says Real are planning to bid for Cole should Chelsea be successful in their bid for Benfica's Fabio Coentrao.

Cole, 30, still has more than two years to run on his £120,000-a-week deal but sources close to the player have said he sees a stint at Real or rivals Barcelona as the perfect end to a stellar career.

Real are also interested in Coentrao, but will turn to Cole if they're beaten for the Portugal fullback's signature.
