Ashley Cole
Cole made an emotional farewell to Chelsea supporters on Sunday.

Chelsea manager Jose Mouirnho is hopeful Ashley Cole and Fernando Torres have not played their final game for the club following the final day win over Cardiff City.

Cole captained the Blues to a 2-1 win over relegated Cardiff, with Torres netting the second half winner for Mourinho's side who finished third, four points behind title winners Manchester City.

The 33 year old Cole, who retired from international football at the start of the week after being omitted from Roy Hodgson's England squad for the World Cup finals, is out of contract at the end of the season and has played a peripheral role behind Cesar Azpilicueta this season.

Torres meanwhile, who has endured another torrid campaign at Stamford Bridge – scoring just 11 goals in all competitions this season –, has just two years to run on his current deal at Chelsea.

But Mourinho, who continues to make no secret of his desire to sign a striker in the summer transfer window, is optimistic neither player has played their final game for the club.

On Cole, Mourinho stated: "I don't know but I don't think so. He wasn't captain to say goodbye in a nice way, he was the player on the pitch who has been here longest. He arrived before Ivanovic so we gave him the armband as a consequence of that, not because it was his last minutes."

"I think he will be at Chelsea, I don't know, the summer is a long summer. I said to my assistants I can't believe I have to wait three months for my next competitive game, that's three months without a real match."

Fellow Chelsea veterans John Terry and Frank Lampard are also out of contract this summer and are yet to agree new deals with the west London club.

The club continue to be linked with a big money move for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa after a term during which Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o failed to provide regular goals and Mourinho says the vast majority will stay.

"During three months a lot can happe," he added.

"Samuel Eto'o finished his contract with the club so the normal situation is that he's leaving, we want to bring in a striker but Fernando and Demba have contracts and I'm happy with that. It's no problem for me if they stay at the club as long as they are happy."
