Casillas: “signs look good” that Cole will join Real
By Football Talk.
Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas believes the signs ‘look good’ that Chelsea’s Ashley Cole will join him at the Bernabeu this summer. Cole has been heavily linked with a £30m move to Real after former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho took over at Madrid, and according to the clubs captain the move could go through in the coming weeks.
“From what I am hearing the signs look good,” Casillas is quoted by The Sun.
“I have only briefly spoken to people at the club, but I am confident that he can be a Real Madrid player next year.
“I think it will be the right move for him both professionally and personally.”
Chelsea are determined to keep hold of Cole but Casillas is confident that the chance to work under former coach Mourinho will persuade the full-back to join Real, while taking the time to praise Cole calling him the best left-back in the world.
He added: “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. He will know better than anybody this club will be successful under Jose.
“Jose has proved he buys players and makes them the very best in the world in their position.
“With Ashley he doesn’t need to do that because he’s already the best left-back in the world. Jose knows all about him and it comes as no surprise to me he is very much on Madrid’s radar.”
