Manchester United have been linked with a shock move for Ashley Cole as they continue to search for a new left back, according to the Mirror.

Cole has only 12 months to run on his current deal at Stamford Bridge and is yet to open talks with the club over an extension.

The uncertainty over his future has alerted United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who is on the look-out for a new left back and has so far been unable to strike a deal with Everton for number 1 target Leighton Baines.

The Toffees are believed to be demanding £15m for Baines, a fee that Fergie is refusing to meet, meaning the Scot has been looking at alternatives.

This has lead him to make tentative enquiries into Cole’s situation and is ready to pounce should he be given any sign that the 31-year-old could be available.

The Mirror suggest Cole will start the season with Chelsea and assess his options throughout the year. However, Ferguson is unlikely to wait around as he needs competition for Patrice Evra in time for the new season after allowing Fabio Da Silva to join QPR on loan.

After his controversial move to Chelsea from Arsenal in 2006, surely Cole wouldn’t risk losing his legendary status at Stamford Bridge as well by moving to United?

Also, why would Fergie look to replace a 31-year-old Evra with a 31-year-old Cole?! Despite what the Mirror claim, I really can’t see there being any possibility of Cole joining Man Utd.
