AC Milan are not only aiming to renew the contract of Rafael Leao but they also hope to keep Olivier Giroud beyond his current deal too.
According to the information of our colleagues at SempreMilan.it, the renewal of Giroud is one of Milan’s priorities together with that of Leao. In the coming days, the Rossoneri management will meet with the player’s agent to discuss the terms of the extension.
There shouldn’t be any problems, but one thing worth mentioning is that Giroud’s agent is planning to ask for a slight increase in salary. Paolo Maldini could well accept that demand, just to ensure he has the striker for next season as well.
Giroud was decisive in the Scudetto win last season scoring crucial goals against the likes of Inter, Lazio and Napoli, while his experience at the age of 36 (37 later this year) could also help in mentoring the centre-forward of the future, whoever that might be.
