Iker Casillas lets slip that Ashley Cole will leave Chelsea and join Real Madrid for £30m

July 14th, 2010

World Cup-winning skipper Iker Casillas has revealed Ashley Cole will leave Chelsea for Real Madrid this summer for £30miilion.
The 29-year-old left back is keen to escape England and will welcome being reunited with former Stamford Bridge boss Jose Mourinho – who signed him when in charge at Chelsea in 2006.

And Casillas – who captained Spain to their World Cup Final defeat of Holland last weekend  – cannot wait for ‘best left back in the world’ Cole to complete the deal.

He insisted: ‘From what I am hearing the signs look good. 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.’

Cole has become a figure of hate since splitting with wife Cheryl – then sent a message to friends saying he hated this country and the people.

Cole also drew criticism after being pictured laughing in the wake of England’s dismal World Cup – before another picture showed him smoking a cigarette.

Casillas added in The Sun: ‘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.’
