Ashley Cole: PSG deny preparing January bid

Cole has been linked with a move to the big-spending Parisians since Carlo Ancelotti - the former Chelsea boss - took over the Ligue 1 side.

But PSG's sporting director Leonardo insists there was no truth to reports that the England left-back or Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder are on the way to France.

"We have never spoken with Ashley Cole, there has never been any contact," he said.

"Carlo was his coach at Chelsea, that's why that story is doing the rounds.

"Sincerely, we have never contacted Wesley Sneijder to come to PSG - we have five players in his position already."

PSG, the French league leaders, are currently in Qatar with Ligue 1 on a winter break.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
