Chelsea Veteran has “Lined Up” Transfer to MLS’ New York Red Bulls

By on December 2, 2013

Chelsea veteran Ashley Cole has reportedly lined up a move to join Thierry Henry at MLS’ New York Red Bulls.

The 32-year-old Englishman has been relegated to the bench for much of this campaign, and his Chelsea contract finishes at the end of the summer.

Recently, Jose Mourinho reportedly offended the defender by picking right-back Cesar Azpilicueta in the left-back position over him.

Mourinho’s insistence on keeping Cole on the bench has raised doubts about the club’s desires to offer the player a new contract, and so Cole has apparently been looking abroad for new pastures.

Ashley Cole, now in his eighth season at Chelsea, has gathered over 300 appearances for Chelsea and has quite literally won everything there is to win in club football.

New York Red Bull have made contact with the defender, and have allocated space in their roster for a new “designated player” in their team – one of three players on a team that can earn over approximately $300,000 without their wage affecting the salary cap.
