Chelsea FC Latest Rumours

Ashley Cole to Real Madrid :

-Ashley Cole has been second-choice at Stamford Bridge this season as Cesar Azpilicueta has excelled at left-back. Although Mourinho is still sure that the veteran will be offered an extension to his current contract, a report by John Richardson in the Express links him with a move to Real Madrid.

Cole would be able to sign a pre-contract with the Spanish side when the transfer window opens, and if he is not guaranteed regular playing time, a reunion with former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti could be on the cards.

Diego Costa in from Atletico Madrid
-Tom Hopkinson of The Mirror reports that Atletico Madrid are willing to let their free-scoring striker move to Stamford Bridge.

Sounds great, right? Chelsea have been struggling to get their strikers to score, and The Telegraph’s Alan Hansen believes that the lack of a world-class striker is the only thing holding them back from winning the Premier League.

However, there is an enormous catch in this potential deal.
Thibaut Courtois to Atletico Madrid
-Thibaut Courtois has been on loan at Atletico Madrid for the last two and a half seasons. In 2012-13 he set a new club record of 820 minutes without conceding a goal in La Liga (per the Daily Mail.) He is 21 years old.

The offer of a straight swap for Deigo Costa may be tempting, but the Blues would be far better off waiting for the summer window to sign a striker rather than risk losing their future shot-stopper.
