English footballer Ashley Cole has an estimated net worth $35 million (£21m) as of 2014, according to the Sunday Times Rich List. Ashley Cole was born on 20 December 1980 in Stepney, London, England. Currently playing for A.S. Roma, Cole started his professional career with Arsenal from 1998 to 2006, Chelsea 2006 to 2014. Cole signed a two-year deal with AS Roma on 7 July 2014.
Cole’s £200,000-a-week contract extension with Chelsea, signed in January 2013 expired and was not extended . This contract is said to be the most lucrative contract for a defender in the world, it was all the more unusual for such a sum to be paid to a defender who spent most of the 2013-2014 season warming the bench, having lost his left-back berth to Cesar Azpilicueta. Cole has been with Chelsea for eight years after an acrimonious departure from Arsenal and has more than 100 caps for England. He divorced singer Cheryl Cole in 2010 after four years of marriage. Allowing for spending, Cole’s hefty contract have added £3m to his wealth between 2013-2014. His father Ron Callender is from Barbados and his mother Sue Cole is English.
