Florent Malouda has admitted he could be forced to consider his future with Chelsea.

The France international has struggled to hold down a regular place at Stamford Bridge following his 13.5million move from Lyon in July 2007.

Sacked coach Luiz Felipe Scolari admitted in an interview given before his departure that Malouda was not playing to his peak of his creative powers.

The midfielder has featured once in new boss Guus Hiddink's three games at the helm and has admitted he may look elsewhere unless he can secure more regular action before the summer.

Analyse

Malouda told reporters: "I would like to play more and there are three more months to try and get a space in the team.

"But if that doesn't happen I will have to analyse the situation."

Malouda was linked with a switch to Juve during the winter transfer window, although the Serie A side moved to quell the speculation.

Chelsea are up against Claudio Ranieri's men in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League and currently hold a 1-0 lead after the first leg at Stamford Bridge.

Malouda added: "The rumours about Juventus came to me. Juve are a great team, but at the moment we are rivals."
