Malouda eyes contract talks

France international Florent Malouda is hoping to sign an extended contract with Chelsea this summer. Malouda struggled in his first 18 months with the club following his £13.5million transfer from Lyon, but has produced some fine displays since the turn of the year culminating in a superb performance in Saturday's FA Cup Final victory against Everton. Reports also suggest that Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti will offer new three-year contracts to Didier Drogba and Alex. Malouda was quoted in the London Evening Standard as saying: "We will have a meeting soon but both parties want to carry on. "It's a wonderful experience but just the beginning. I hope in the next years you will see me win many, many trophies. "When you play so many high-profile games you get the experience and confidence that comes with it. I hope to share joy and happiness with the fans. "With Ashley Cole on the left we have confidence so it gives us a lot for the next years." Malouda has 12 months of his current Stamford Bridge deal left to run as does Alex.
