Casillas: Ashley Cole close to Real Madrid switch

Chelsea defender Ashley Cole is reportedly close to making a £30m switch to La Liga giants Real Madrid according to the club’s goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

The England fullback has recently split from his wife Cheryl and looks set to start a new life in Spain. ‘From what I am hearing the signs look good,’ Casillas is alleged to have told reporters.

The World Cup winning captain continued: ‘I have only briefly spoken to people at the club but I am confident he can be a Real Madrid player next year. I think it will be the right move for him both professionally and personally.’

‘A clean break from England is hopefully something he is very interested in. It will be his last big contract and who better to sign for than his old coach Mourinho at Real.’
