Chelsea defender Ashley Cole's future has been thrown into doubt after it has emerged that the club are yet to open talks with the England defender over the possibility of signing a new deal with the club.
The contract of the former Arsenal star comes to an end at the end of this season. He would be free to negotiate with the interested parties in six months time. However, there has been no sign of an offer from the club. It is thought that Ashley Cole would also prefer to move to the MLS in search of a new challenge.
