Malouda predicts Anelka will stay at Chelsea
Florent Malouda has backed his France team-mate Nicolas Anelka to sign a new contract with Chelsea. Malouda is convinced that Anelka will sign a new two-year deal and believes many other stars will commit themselves to the Blues.
The 31-year-old has scored 40 goals in the last two seasons since he joined from Bolton for £15million in 2008.
"I know that he (Anelka) wishes to stay and to extend his contract," said Malouda. "Now it's just a straight relation between him and the club but I know there have been discussions between them.
"Things are very good for him. During the transfer window there is always speculation but there is no doubt."
