The England defender is out of contract at the end of the season and has struggled to hold down a regular place in Mourinho's starting XI this season.

Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has recently revealed that he would be happy if Cole joined him in the MLS with New York Red Bulls in the summer.

And the Portuguese thinks that Cole's head may have been turned.

Mourinho said: "Yes, he (Cole) has (got a future at Chelsea), but maybe Thierry has a better proposal.

"Maybe Thierry is doing with Red Bulls the same as David (Beckham) is doing in Miami. Maybe he's buying Red Bulls! I have to ask Thierry Henry (what's happening with Cole)."

Cole could return for Chelsea on Saturday against Newcastle United in the Barclays Premier League.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!

One Liverpool Mailer wants a manager who isn't starstruck by the job. Plus why Milner has now become overrated, play-offs for the title, Ronaldinho and democracy..

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
