Ashley Coles contract with Chelsea may expire in the summer, but Jose Mourinho appears ready to give the defender another year at Stamford Bridge. After losing his place to Cesar Azpilicueata, though, and with better offers coming in from other big clubs, Cole is no doubt considering his future. He certainly has options – Real Madrid, Monaco and the New York Red Bulls are all reportedly vying for the England international’s signature.
So, Ashley may soon be driving his prized Mercedes SLS AMG out of Chelsea for the very last time. But did you ever wonder how long it took him to pay for it? The answer is ten days. In fact, were he to move to Monaco, Cole could earn £10million a year tax-free. That’d get him a new Merc every week and still leave change.
