Arguably Chelsea's best player during last season's run-in has, after intense speculation linking him with Milan and Juventus, finally agreed a contract extension with the Blues.
Now, everybody together, breathe.
Via Chelseafc.com ...
"Chelsea Football Club has agreed terms with Florent Malouda on a new four year contract.
The 29-year-old, who recently regained his place in the France side, joined the Blues from Lyon in 2007, where he spent four seasons.
Last season saw his second campaign with Chelsea, one in which he scored several crucial goals, including the equaliser in our eventual 2-1 win over Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final.
In total, Malouda scored nine goals last season, doubling the four-goal tally he netted during his first campaign with the Blues.
The new contract will see Malouda remain at Chelsea until 2013."
Great news for the club. Hopefully Flo will continue to flourish under Carlo & Co.
For those who haven't seen it, here's Malouda getting all reggae with it in French Guiana. For archival purposes, as well -- clearly.
