A little while ago, Luiz Felipe Scolari suggested any of his players who wanted out could go – at the right price.
Well, by all accounts that’s had Villareal sitting up to listen although they don’t appear to have heard the second part of Scolari’s statement. Because, whilst they apparently want to put a bid in for Florent Malouda, this bid is rumoured to be in the region of £9million. Hardly what you’d call the right price then, seeing as we signed him for £13.5million in July 2007.
Mind you, I can’t see him being allowed to go anywhere with Joe Cole already out for the remainder of the season anyway.
