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.

He told The Sun: "I had a problem to sort out with certain people. It's done. Now, I'm free.

"I'm going to be able to play again next season and I cannot wait.

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

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
