The troubled England international is being tipped to quit the Stamford Bridge club this summer following the breakdown of his marriage, as he looks for a fresh start overseas.

The obvious destination for Cole, regarded by many as the best left-back in the world, would be Real Madrid, where he would link up with his former Blues boss Jose Mourinho.

According to The Sun, Carlo Ancelotti is already considering replacements for the 29-year-old, and top of this list comes Benfica star Fabio Coentrao.

The 22-year-old was one of the standout performers in the World Cup Finals, where he starred for Portugal before they crashed out in the last sixteen against eventual winners Spain.
