Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti has denied speculation that he will make a bid for Chelsea and England left-back Ashley Cole.
The former Chelsea boss insists the 31-year-old veteran, who is entering the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge and has yet to open talks over an extension, won’t be joining the mega-rich and high-spending French club.
Ancelotti told Abola that PSG have finished their summer spending and there will be no more players coming to the French capital.
“The transfer window is over for us… The club did a good job.
All the news from England [about Cole] are just rumours.”
Cole, who has one year left to run on his current contract at Stamford Bridge, has yet to be offered a new deal at Chelsea which has alerted a number of top European clubs about his possible availability. Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was reportedly mulling a move for Cole to replace Patrice Evra but it is not believed that he has made a firm offer for the player yet.
The vastly-experienced defender has spent six seasons at Chelsea and has made over 250 appearances and is said to be very happy at the Bridge where he added two further medals to his cabinet last season. He is perhaps one of the modern era’s most successful ever English players not to have played for Manchester United having won the Premier League on 3 occasions, the Champions League, the FA cup 7 times, the League cup at his time at Arsenal and Chelsea and is two appearances away from making 100 appearances for England.
