United to Snatch Joe Cole!

United to Snatch Joe Cole!

One of the leading red-tops seems quite convinced that Manchester United could be about to lure Joe Cole away from Stamford Bridge.

Cole, who has yet to agree a new contract with Chelsea and becomes a free agent on 1st July, is currently with the England squad preparing for the World Cup in South Africa.

Being a free agent, United would not have to pay any transfer fee and could provide the sort of salary that Cole is hanging out for at Chelsea.

Could this deal work?

Could Joe Cole provide the play-making spark to see us regain the Premier League title?

Not for me. He's a good player, who would be capable of playing in the hole like Park did against milan - but obviously he has more quality on the ball than park. However, I'm not convinced he really has that vision and intricate passing ability we're looking for. Looking at players like David Silva, Mesut Ozil and Luka Modric - they're constantly trying to thread little passes through to the strikers and I'm not sure Joe Cole can really match their standards in that aspect. Even players like Hamsik and Jovetic would be preferable because what they lack in assists they'd make up with goals. Players like Gourcuff, Costa and Hazard would also be preferable because of their superior dribbling abilities. With his injury record, he really isnt the ideal signing. He'd be my last resort when it comes to attacking midfield signings. In fact, the only reason I'd really want us to get him is if we were spending the rest of the money on someone expensive like Rodwell, Toure or Benzema.

I wouldnt be disappointed if we do end up signing him, but I would feel that we could have done better.

Chelsea won the title despite, rather than because of Joe Cole. For most of the season, he was injured. The rest of the time he was a waste of a squad number. He's holding out for silly, and totally unjustified money. You are welcome to him.

I would take him as a Hail Mary, would rather have someone with more creative vision and the legs to carry it out.

I agree EuroBlue.His demands are totally unjustified and i dont think i'd like to see him in a United shirt! He didn't really contribute anything to your title success this season! Honestly,if I was Capello i'd take Johnson to the World Cup way ahead of Cole! But i'm not Capello and thats why i'm sitting at my computer with a beer at 4 a.m :)

In fairness chelsea fans have been pretty unimpressed with him all season. Though I have to say, the fact that Joe Cole got 6 assists in the league despite his limited playing time shows he isnt an awful player by any means. Players like Modric(3), Nasri(4), Benayoun(5) and Gerrard(7) all played a lot more than him.
