AC Milan seem to have one of the higher average ages for their team amongst the European elite.
Great stars like David Beckham and Ronaldinho have joined the club in the latter stages of their careers and profited from the slower pace of Serie A.
Unlike The Premier league Italy affords skilful older players the time to express themselves on the ball which makes for entertaining football.
Whether AC Milan fans like that idea or not it seems set to continue with Ashley Cole the latest to be linked to the club by reports in England.
Cole looks as if he may well leave Chelsea this summer after eight glorious years at the club in which he won pretty much every honour at club level.
But at the age of 33 he was omitted from the England squad for the summer World Cup, played much less for his club last season, and may well look for a fresh challenge for the last chapter of his glorious career.
Bookmakers Bet Victor have AC Milan as favourites to sign the player this summer, if he does leave Chelsea, at the very short odds of 1/1.
soccersweep thinks that very few AC Milan supporters would be disappointed if the player did join the club. Despite his age he’s still a fantastic athlete who hasn’t had many serious injuries in his career and can still outrun many a Premier League striker.
We believe that Cole has a least two years left of top level football and could suit Italy perfectly.
Let’s have a look at him in action. AC Milan fans: would you be keen on Cole?
