CM: Milan could conclude signing of Chelsea striker next week – the figures and details

By Isak Möller -

Milan have seemingly found their deputy for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who won’t be able to play every game for the team this season. In fact, they have reached an agreement in principle to sign Olivier Giroud, a report claims. 

Giroud’s contract will expire at the end of June and as reported by Calciomercato.com, Milan have an agreement in principle to sign him on a free transfer. The 34-year-old got the perfect ending to his Chelsea adventure, winning the Champions League last night.

The agreement is on the basis of a two-year deal worth around €4m per season. Giroud has been looking for a house in Milan and the final details should be defined next week. In fact, the medical tests could take place very soon.

Bar any big surprises, Giroud will become a new Rossoneri player and take the role as the deputy for Ibrahimovic next season. A good signing for the club, considering the calibre of the player.

    Why in hell would you sign another 34 yr old striker
    It make no sense when your rebuilding the team for UCL
    They have lost their minds
    Giroud is not the answer

    It’s a good deal. Giroud and Zlatan will be more than capable. Milan need all their money to buy out the loan deals and to invest in an attacking midfielder and a right winger.

    Then next season we can go for a great striker.

      Reasonable. And a comment I’d like to make. We could focus on the RW position and splash on the striker the next. It also allows us to be wiser with the Vlahovic option as another year in Fiorentina develops him further, confirms him not a Piatek thing, and could be cheaper if he doesn’t have a new contract then.

      Also, these days we will be spending 28+15(25) for 2 permanent signings fm loans.
