Florent Malouda is still yet to meet Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez despite the Spaniard taking over a the club 56 days ago.

It was claimed in a report in The Times that the French winger has not come across Benitez yet as he looks ahead to ending his career at Stamford Bridge.

32-year old Malouda had been frozen out by Roberto Di Matteo and now the same has happened under the new manager but he plans to see out his £100,000-a-week contract which ends in the summer.

At this stage, there has been no real interest for Malouda who was close to a move to Brazilian outfit Santos last summer before his hefty wages got in the way.
