UFFICIALE – Milan, sfuma Giroud: ha rinnovato col Chelsea fino al 2022
Sfuma l’approdo in Italia – più precisamente al Milan – di Olivier Giroud. L’attaccante francese ha infatti rinnovato il proprio contratto con il Chelsea fino al 30 giugno 2022. Ad annunciarlo è stato lo stesso club londinese in una nota stampa, dove spiega che l’opzione di rinnovo del numero 12 francese è stata attivata già nel mese di aprile. Ecco di seguito il testo del comunicato:
“Chelsea Football Club can confirm that an option to extend Olivier Giroud’s contract by one year was exercised in April this year.
The Frenchman’s current deal was due to expire at the end of this campaign but an extension means the 34-year-old’s three-and-a-half-year stay in west London continues for another year.
Since his move across the capital from Arsenal, Giroud has helped the Blues secure three major honours, as well as claiming World Cup glory with France in 2018. He has 32 goals to his name for the club, including half-a-dozen this season in the Champions League, making him the top scorer for the European champions in that competition.
A four-goal haul against Sevilla was the standout performance for the striker in 2020/21, though his most telling contribution came in the Round of 16 as he fired in a vital away goal against Atletico Madrid with a stunning overhead kick”.
