Florent Malouda: France international happy to be leaving Chelsea

The £13.5million signing from Lyon in the summer of 2007 was frozen out of the first-team at Stamford Bridge this season, failing to make a single appearance.

Malouda's last outing for the Blues came in their UEFA Champions League final triumph over Bayern Munich 12 months ago.

But with his contract having now reached a conclusion, the 32-year-old winger is keen to make a fresh start, with former club Lyon one side reported to be interested in his services.

"I've been preparing all year long. I'll be back next season."

This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
