Monaco join Real Madrid and New York Red Bulls in the pursuit of Ashley Cole, who is out of contract at Chelsea in the summer, according to a report.

Monaco have reportedly joined in the race to sign Ashley Cole in the summer.

The England international defender is out of contract at Chelsea at the end of the season.

The Blues are said to be willing to offer a new one-year deal to the 33-year-old, but the left-back is not guaranteed regular playing time and wants to explore other options.

Real Madrid and New York Red Bulls were already keen on Cole, and now Monaco have started to show their interest, according to The People.

It has been reported that Cole could be tempted by the riches offered by the French club, who could pay him around £10m a year without tax.

The presence of his former Chelsea teammate Ricardo Carvalho and Colombia international striker Radamel Falcao at Monaco could also lure Cole to the Ligue 1 outfit.
