So here we go again with the Joe Cole saga. Have talks have already happened between Joe Cole's advisors, Arsenal and also Manchester United?. There are reports that they have but both clubs have a stumbling block over a possible move.

Its reported that Joe Cole's preferred destination is Manchester United. As I reported on here this afternoon in my Daily Drivel, Marcel Desailly suggested that a move to United would benefit Cole so he could take his career forward. It seems that this could be the way Joe see's it and would favour the move. However, it seems that United and Alex Ferguson have a stumbling block over the reported duration of the contract. On a free transfer, Joe wants a 4-year deal. At 28 this would take him through arguably the peak of his career but if reports are to be believed, United would only offer him a shorter deal.

Now as far as Arsenal are concerned the stumbling block is the wages Joe is looking for. I reported on here last week that he was looking for 110k per week but there are new reports coming out of The Emirates that Arsenal wouldn't entertain that amount of money. New reports state that Wenger would look to offer Joe Cole 80k per week with performance and appearance related bonuses attached to the contract. This is due to a concern that Wenger has over Cole's long term fitness.

The news today is that Cole will sort out his future once he returns from the World Cup. With reports that Chelsea withdrew their contract offer for Joe as he had made it clear he would be leaving it seems that its between these two for his signature.

I still hope that Joe can see at some stage that his future lies with Chelsea. I know it seems that hopes of keeping Joe are fading day by day but the Manager and Ray Wilkins have come out and said that they want him to stay so someone needs to give the board a shove to sort this out.

Just remember though Chelsea fans, as per my article yesterday, We have Malouda and could Malouda's form be one of the reason's Joe Cole could leave us this summer?
