There have been some reports on the TalkSport website that big spending Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala are willing to take Florent Malouda away from his Chelsea nightmare before their transfer window shuts.
The Frenchman has been an outcast at the club ever since Roberto Di Matteo told him he had no future there. And it was reported last month that interim boss Rafa Benitez has not even met with the 32-year-old, despite being almost two months into his Chelsea tenure.
Even though being told he is free to leave Stamford Bridge, however, the winger was included in Chelsea’s revised 25-man squad submitted after January’s transfer window – hinting he might still have a role to play at the club.
Mega-rich Anzhi, however, want to land Malouda before their window shuts later this month. (TalkSport)
Malouda is so far down the pecking order that he doesn’t even get to train with the first team anymore and doesn’t get the opportunity to sit on the bench. So it would be best for all parties if he left and the blues got his massive wages off their wage bill.
