Malouda looking for first-team chances as duo prepare bids

Chelsea midfielder Florent Malouda has once again stated his desire to get a more regular chance in the first team or make a move away from Stamford Bridge, Sky Sports reports.

The 31 year old has been linked with Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala and Brazilian club Palmeiras after starting just four league matches this season. Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has preferred Daniel Sturridge and Juan Mata in the wide areas this season and Malouda has made his feelings clear once again over where he sees his future. Palmeiras are managed by ex-Chelsea boss Luis Felipe Scolari and the French international could be open to moving to Brazil.

Malouda said: ‘I am the kind of player who needs to play week in week and the manager knows that. I am expecting to start more games, because that’s my standard and it’s what I’ve been doing for the last two seasons. I am trying to show, when I get the time, that I have the quality to start games’.

Palmeiras vice director of football Roberto Frizzon confirmed that his side turned down the chance to sign Malouda, but could be open to a move again after the Frenchman’s words. There is the chance of moving back to France with Paris Saint Germain, who are coached by another former Blues boss in Carlo Ancelotti.
