London, June 5 (ANI): Chelsea will offer Ashley Cole a 27 million-pound four-year deal to fend off a bid from Barcelona.
According to The Sun, New Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti wants the England ace, 28, to become the world's highest-paid left-back at 130,000 pounds a week - bringing him into line with the club's top earners.
Barca coach Pep Guardiola is prepared to offer 20 million pounds for Cole, but Chelsea are confident he will stay at the club.
Cole has two years left on his 80,000-pound-a-week contract. (ANI)
