Moretto: Giroud tempted by a future away from Milan – the possible destinations

By Ben Dixon -

Olivier Giroud’s AC Milan future has long been up in the air, and a report has now suggested that the Frenchman could be leaning more towards a move away from the club. 

There have been a lot of rumours about where Giroud’s future may lie, and the most recent reports suggested that the Frenchman’s future was in his own hands, with Milan happy to offer him a new deal on their terms.

The downside to their terms is that the veteran would have to accept a lesser role within the squad, something he is seemingly unwilling to do. As a result, it seems a move away might be the best option for all parties.

As Matteo Moretto has revealed in his column on the Daily Briefing for CaughtOffside, there are several options open to the striker. He is ‘very, very attracted’ to the idea of a move outside of Europe, and his dream would be the MLS if he were to move away – there have been enquiries from there already. Alternatively, there is also interest from Dubai.

The report states that Giroud and Milan will discuss the situation at the end of the season. However, as previously reported, it is up to Giroud.

  1. Offering him a lesser role and a lower pay after such a season is a slap in the face. They should kiss him in the head and feet for his goals and assists, we wouldn’t be on the podium without him.

    1. True. It should be the new guy who needs to take his starting role away from Giroud and not get a free pass to the starting line-up. Giroud has shown what he can do.

  2. I’d rather we keep him. It will be very hard to get a young player to produce such numbers. The price tag and pressure of a club like Milan takes its toll on them.
    Also we have been very unlucky with big buys on ST

    1. “It will be very hard to get a young player to produce such numbers. ”

      And even harder with “Milan money” (ie, 30-40M€). Sounds like a mission impossible to me. Like it or not but we need Giroud for a year more.

    2. Well I hope Giroud stays for another season we could do with his goals and assists.
      Even if we do spend big money on a new centre forward..knowing Giroud he would still fight for his place..just having him would be a huge boost
