Olivier Giroud has had the opportunity to move to Saudi Arabia and enjoy the vast riches of the league there but rejected all advances, it is claimed.
Back in April, Giroud signed the renewal of his contract with Milan until June 2024 which thus certified his importance to the team but also his happiness at being at the club, with whom he has 32 goals and 11 assists in 85 games.
According to Corriere della Sera (via PianetaMilan) however, the Frenchman has had the chance to join the Saudi Pro League where the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo play among many others.
As Giroud’s agent revealed to the paper, despite the fact that the striker had received calls he never regretted his choice to stay with the Rossoneri.
“We have been contacted by many intermediaries, but we have said no,” he said. Milan have signed Noah Okafor to compliment the 36-year-old, but he will still be the focal point of the attack going into next season.
