Cole who was criticised after his first half performances against the German giants Bayern Munich in a Champions League group game is also keen to return to Premier League.
While on the other side Luke Shaw will get some competition from Cole who has already proved in the Premier League. United boss LVG considers him as one of the best left-back of his generation.
