EX-CHELSEA star Florent Malouda has revealed he has been trying to convince Kylian Mbappe to make the switch to Stamford Bridge.
The PSG star is considered one of the best players in the world but could be on the move in the summer, according to French media.

And Malouda, 42, is keen to see the French international in the Premier League.
He revealed that he has been trying for a “very long time” to convince Mbappe, 24, that Chelsea should be the club he joins.
Malouda told ICE 36: “I’ve been campaigning for him to join Chelsea for a very long time!
“So far, I’ve failed but I will keep trying.
“Hopefully, we will see him in the Premier League because that is the most competitive league in the world – it would be great to see him here.
“There are not that many teams that can give him what he wants and there are not that many teams that can build their team around him.
“He is a leader, he’s just been appointed the captain of the French national team and he will be looking for a leadership role at his next club, which can create problems.”
Chelsea have spent a fortune since last summer on new players but have seen very little success, with the club sitting in 11th place in the Premier League.
Malouda was in turn asked if Blues co-owner Todd Boehly could be preparing a move for Mbappe.
He replied: “I think Boehly and everyone in football already knows about Kylian.
“Any owner would have Mbappe on his list, but it’s really about the right connection on a human level.
“We can talk about the millions he would cost in transfer fees or wages, but it’s always the human relationship that has the biggest impact on the decision of any player.”
Despite Mbappe being linked with an exit from the Parc des Princes, the Ligue 1 giants are determined to keep hold of their star player.
And the forward has recently admitted that he is determined to win the Champions League with the club.
He said: “The next step? Winning the Champions League. I have already made a final, semi-final, quarter-final, round of 16 … I have done everything but win.
“That’s all I need. Where [I want to do it]? In Paris. I’m a Parisian and under contract. So it’s PSG.”
