Speculation continues to surround the future of Chelsea winger Florent Malouda after the latest moan regarding his lack of first-team opportunities.
The 31-year-old has been linked with Anzhi Makhachkala and Brazilian club Palmeiras, who are managed by ex-Stamford Bridge boss Luiz Felipe Scolari, after a regular role as a substitute.
Malouda has already made it clear he is unhappy about his limited chances, having starting just four Premier League matches this season, and has let his views be known to Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas.
The France international said in the Sunday Star: "I am the kind of player who needs to play week in, week out and the manager knows that.
"I am expecting to start more games because that's my standard and it's what I've been doing for the last two seasons.
"I am trying to show, when I get the time, that I have the quality to start games."
