Ashley Cole linked with return to Arsenal, so where are the rest of the 2004 'Invincibles' now?
Left-back could be the fourth member of the unbeaten team to re-sign
Should Ashley Cole do the impossible and rejoin Arsenal, he would be the fourth member of the imperious 2004 'Invincibles' to be re-signed by manager Arsene Wenger, following Jens Lehmann, Sol Campbell and Thierry Henry.
Add in the mix Robert Pires and Gilberto Silva, who have in the past returned to the club for training sessions and that is potentially six members of the Gunners starting XI from that unbeaten season who at some point returned.
Cole left Arsenal in controversial circumstances to join Chelsea in a part-exchange for William Gallas in 2006, but is out of contract with the Blues in the summer. While the allure of the MLS in America seems a more probable destination for the 33-year-old left-back, stranger things have happened in the world of football.
The currently suspended Mathieu Flamini of course re-signed for the club from Milan over the summer, but he originally joined the Gunners the season after their unprecedented Premier League triumph.
So, 10 years after the success, from Japan to America, where are the rest of the 'Invincibles' now?
