Newcastle in £12m swoop for Chelsea winger Malouda

Newcastle are ready to spend £12million on Chelsea winger Florent Malouda if Stamford Bridge boss Luiz Felipe Scolari signs Robinho from Real Madrid.

And Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has sanctioned a late transfer window spree which could bring in Malouda and up to three more players.

Change of allegiance: Florent Malouda scores for Chelsea against Newcastle United in May

When ex-Chelsea captain Dennis Wise, Newcastle's executive director (football), approached his former club about Malouda, he was told that the France star would be allowed to leave only if a deal for Robinho was completed.

Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon gave conflicting signals last night, in one breath accusing Robinho of disrespect for trying to secure a move so close to the start of the Spanish season, and with the next insisting that Real have no desire to keep players who want to leave.


Robinho: On his way?

Chelsea are believed to have offered about £20m for the Brazil forward. Newcastle, meanwhile, have also targeted Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos, Wigan winger Antonio Valencia and the Czech Republic pair, Michal Kadlec of Sparta Prague and Marek Jankulovski of AC Milan.


Bad bad bad idea, Malouda is just starting to turn good. Drogba took a while too...give the boy him time.

He looked great pre-season, but I'm not sure that counts for anything.

He and Anelka were the weak links (surprise!) against Portsmouth too

unfortunately he looked great last pre-season too. im willing to give him the benefit of the doubt this season as it does normally take a season for foregin players to fit in. but if hes no better by xmas then he should go.

I'd like to see him stay. At least one more season. If Sweepy is off, then I think we will need to keep him. Otherwise, unless we sign Binho, we could be looking pretty light with wide players


If we lose Malouda and SWP we are left with Joey and Kalou. That simply is not enough. If either one of these deals happen we are getting Robinho.

Form temporary, class permanent, and we have one of the master motivators of football in charge of our club.

If they are gonna give us what we paid, take it, but otherwise give Malouda another chance. Replace Sheva and let that be that.

Form temporary, class permanent? Then did Sheva just have a really long spell of good form in Italy? :D
