Malouda not leaving Chelsea

22 April 2009 01:28
Chelsea winger Florent Malouda has dismissed reports that he could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge in the summer. Malouda, 28, has struggled to live up to his £13.5million price tag after joining the Blues from French side Lyon in summer 2007. However, the France international claims he is happy at Chelsea and is not looking to move away at the end of the season. "I still see my future at Chelsea," he told the London Evening Standard. "Everyone is talking about my future but I will stay here for a long, long time." Meanwhile, Malouda believes this season could be Chelsea's in the Champions League ahead of next week's semi-final showdown with Barcelona. He added: "We can do great things in the remainder of the season, especially in the Champions League. Everyone is thinking about the Final we lost against United in Moscow last year. "Our target is to reach the Final again and win it. We know it won't be easy to beat Barcelona in the semi-finals but we have to be ready for that if we are to deserve to win the competition."
