The France international has spent the last 12 months in the football wilderness, with Chelsea having frozen him out of their first-team picture in the final year of his contract.

Malouda was unable to negotiate an exit from Stamford Bridge and had to bide his time while waiting for a window of opportunity to present itself.

He is now a free agent and is understood to have attracted interest from Napoli, Marseille and Olympiakos.

No decision has been taken on where his next move will take him, but Malouda is delighted to find himself in a position where he can dictate his future.

"I am thinking I will take a decision soon," he said.

"I need to go to a club and play football. I do not want to experience my last year at Chelsea again. It was difficult for me and I need to have certain guarantees before making a decision.

"The positive news is that clubs are interested in me and want me at their club. That is the most important thing."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
