Athletic: Milan star Giroud in ‘advanced talks’ with MLS club – the details

By Ben Dixon -

For some time, Olivier Giroud’s chapter at AC Milan has looked like it will end at the end of the 2023-24 season, and a recent report has suggested that his future might be looking more likely to be away from the club. 

Milan and Giroud have spoken about a new deal and the terms needed for both parties to be happy to continue together, and recently, a report suggested that the Rossoneri favoured a deal that saw the Frenchman remain at the club with heavily reduced playing time – which aligns with their hunt for a new number nine.

However, the veteran striker would prefer to continue in his current role, given he still feels able to hold a significant role within the squad.

Alongside the Frenchman’s talks with the club, though, there have been reports of Giroud’s desire to explore a future away from Milan once his contract ended, with America being a favoured destination for him.

Today, The Athletic have reported that the Frenchman is in ‘advanced talks’ with LAFC about a potential deal when his current contract with the Diavolo expires. However, the report stated that no deal is imminent, with Giroud preferring to keep his options open until the end of the season.

  1. I would be really sad to see him leave as it could be beneficial to keep him one more year. He can probably also get a two year contract there in a year so i really hope he stays and help us even if he doesnt play as a starter every match in 24/25 season.

  2. Don’t think Oli wants to stay for another year. I think he wants the California sun and to take it easy at his “old” age. Can’t blame him either.

    This summer will be important to replace him properly.

    1. I also think its a likely scenario that he will leave as he keeps telling its a decision that also depends on his family which might indicate that its not a sure thing. Hope he stays though.

    2. I think his wife is American so I am sure she would like to live back in the US and his good friend Hugo Lloris plays for LAFC. He gets to score loads of goals, his wife is happy and gets to hang with a long time friend. its GG.

    1. That’s more inline with his market value but he’d probably cost more. I’d say at least 40m if you know the Portuguese.

  3. He strikes me as the kind of character who – even at 38 (next season), just wants to play football. If he’d rather have 90 minute matches in the MLS than be understudy here, then very best of luck to him. What a player!!!
