Florent Malouda insists he is planning on staying at Chelsea next season, despite rumours linking the star with a move away from the London club.
Speculation surrounding a number of Blues stars has understandably escalated with the arrival of a new manager in the shape of Andre Villas-Boas.
But Malouda, for one, sees his future at the Bridge, and wants to be part of a new revolution with the recently deposed Barclays Premier League champions.
“I have a contract that runs until 2013," Malouda told France-Guyane newspaper. "My career plan is to play at a high level until at least 2014. My ambition is to continue until 2014 in Chelsea.”
Malouda was the second top scorer for Chelsea in all games last season, amassing 14 goals for the club. He was also the top scorer in league games, and the midfielder insists he’s getter better with every passing season.
"Since my arrival at Chelsea, I have had six coaches. At every transfer window we talk about my name,” Malouda said. "The coach (Villas-Boas) was part of Jose Mourinho's staff and worked with him in my recruitment.
"This season I finished top scorer in the league, that means I'm getting better, it means perhaps also that I am in the right place."
Chelsea are yet to make a move in the transfer period, and while the London club splashed out over £70 million on Fernando Torres and David Luiz in January, some big names have been connected with new Blues manager Villas-Boas.
