Chelsea midfielder Florent Malouda has seen a move to Santos fall through.

Chelsea midfielder Florent Malouda has seen a move to Santos fall through.

Malouda, 32, still has 12 months of his £70,000-a-week contract to run and had been hoping to be released as a free agent.

But Chelsea are looking for around £5million for the former Lyon player. It was that fee coupled with his £3million-a-year wage demands that killed Santos’ interest.
