I am reading all over the press and the net this morning that Sir Alex Ferguson is rumoured to be looking at Joe Cole as an ideal replacement for Ryan Giggs at United!.

Its no secret that Joe Cole's contract talks seem to of (according to the press anyway) hit a stumbling block on his reported wage demands to be on a par with the clubs second tier earners. If no contract can be reached then Joe will be a free agent in the summer.

Bruce Buck has said previously that he is a "Big Fan"of Joe and that the club is in discussions with his agent and hope to have the situation resolved soon. Carlo Ancelotti, even though unable to guarantee Joe first team football week-in-week-out has said that he is an important player at Chelsea so the signs from the club are good.

Granted, Joe has not been anywhere near his best since he has returned from injury and last weekend against Cardiff he probably had the worst game in a Chelsea shirt. But, his natural ability and his class will show through again once more as Joe looks to cement his place in the Chelsea side under Ancelotti and for England in the World Cup this summer.

The problem is, Carlo Ancelotti will be aware of his talent and ability but so far hasn't really seen Joe produce the goods on the pitch in front of him so as a Chelsea fan you do have to be slightly worried. 

With the lure of Sir Alex Ferguson and possible first team football week in week out we need to nip this in the bud asap.

If Chelsea are to maintain their standards in domestic and european football then Joe has to be a mainstay as far as I am concerned. Joe has age on his side and with the likes of Ballack, Lampard etc coming into the twight of their career's in a few season's we simply have to keep hold of Joe.

The problem is with Joe being a free agent in the summer United won't have to pay a transfer fee so the wages probably wouldn't be a stumbling block (unless the Glazier's take out more money from their coffers!) so if Joe sticks to his guns and his reported £120,000 per week wage demands then it could be a very real possibility.

But at the end of the day, Joe is a Chelsea Fan, Chelsea love Joe Cole and let's hope an agreement can be reached asap for the good of Chelsea and for their continued success in the future.

"He's here!, he's there!, he's everywhere _ _ _ _ _ _ _ where! Joey Cole! Joey Cole!"
