Malouda linked with exit
Chelsea are looking to offload Florent Malouda this summer and reports claim a move to Brazil could be on the cards.
Malouda is no longer thought to be in the plans of boss Roberto Di Matteo as Chelsea look to put a fresh stamp on the squad this summer and Brazilian side Fluminese are being linked. The Frenchman still has 12 months to run on his current contract and he had spoken of his desire to sign up for another 12 months to take him to the 2014 World Cup, ironically in Brazil. However Chelsea have no intention of offering him a new deal and would rather cash in now than risk losing him on a free transfer in 12 months time. There should be no shortage of takers for Malouda and Fluminese could be ready to offer him and his Brazilian wife the chance of a move to South America.
