Chelsea winger Florent Malouda has begun talks over a possible move to Paris St Germain.

After finishing as the club's top scorer last season, scoring 15 goals in all competitions, Malouda has been seldom required this term, starting just 16 of The Blues' 55 games this term.

And the 31-year-old, who has a year remaining on his current contract at Chelsea, admits he has begun preliminary talks with former boss Carlo Ancelotti over a move to Ligue 1.

"I've already spoken to him about it but the answer must stay between us," he said.

"He's someone I like a lot but I do not know if it's possible."

Malouda enjoyed his best form at Stamford Bridge under Ancelotti, scoring 27 times in two seasons under the Italian, before his sacking at the end of the last campaign.

The France International also claimed the league and cup double during Ancelotti's reign; however Malouda's opportunities have been restricted under Andre Villas-Boas and interim boss Roberto Di Matteo.

Malouda is undecided over his future.

Even with suspensions to Ramires, Raul Meireles, Branislav Ivanovic and John Terry for next month's Champions League final, Malouda is considered an outsider to be selected in the matchday squad but is nevertheless determined to play a part in a winning Chelsea cause.

"No, I don't accept being a sub," he added. "I would never accept it otherwise it would be time for me to retire.

"It has been a hard season for me but things can change very quickly here. Last year I was the club's top scorer and this year I started the season as a substitute and less playing time.

"This year I experienced quarter-finals from the stands, a semi-final on the bench, which is the first time for me. I want to play in finals and win them.

"I know I show up when I'm on the pitch. But I'm not someone who likes to complain.

"Everything is possible here. I'll see what the coach wants to do. I am a competitor; of course I want to play. I have one year left, I think I will go to the end of my contract."

Malouda is not the only Chelsea player with their future in the balance this summer, with out-of-contract Didier Drogba another likely to depart and a potential offer from Nicolas Anelka's Shanghai Shenhua in the offing.

Salomon Kalou is another who could be on his way out of west London, after the Ivory Coast international claimed Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt was trying to tempt him to move back to Feyenoord.
