Brazilian clubs set sights on Malouda

Chelsea winger Florent Malouda is set to move to Brazil in January, according to reports, although his precise destination remains the subject of conjecture.

Malouda, 32, has been marginalised at Stamford Bridge this season, having been omitted from the Blues' 25-man Champions League squad and forced to train with the club's youth team.

The France international had appeared close to ending his eight-year spell in West London during the summer by securing a move to Brazil - the homeland of his wife - but a transfer failed to materialise.

However, the Daly Mirror reports that Santos are planning to launch a bid for Malouda in January, with the only obstacle to the transfer his wage demands - thought to be £80,000 a week.

As it stands, there is a significant amount of negotiation to be done, but the midfielder is understood to be hugely keen on the move.

Vasco de Gama have also been linked with a swoop, with club captain and Malouda's former Lyon team-mate Juninho Pernambucano recently telling Calcio Mercato: "I called him to tell him that I want to see him play with me. The club are interested, but unfortunately so far it has not been possible because of economic reasons.

"At the beginning he may have trouble becoming acclimatised. But with his quality, I think he could bring a lot to Brazilian football and I hope that he does."
