Tuttosport: Giroud may not be Milan’s last striker signing of the summer – young profile wanted

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s movements in the attacking department are not expected to end with the signing of Olivier Giroud, according to a report.

Gianluca Di Marzio (via MilanLive) among other sources has confirmed that the negotiations between Milan and Chelsea over Giroud’s move to the Rossoneri have completed. Milan will pay the Premier League side €1m for the Frenchman plus a further €1m in potential bonuses which are not easy to achieve, while the striker will sign a two-year deal at €3.5m net per season.

Giroud is currently on vacation in France and expects to join his new team-mates shortly as Di Marzio added that the day for signing and medical visits should be Monday.

According to this morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Giroud is unlikely to be the last striker that Milan sign this summer, though he will become a new Rossoneri player in the next few days.

That is because the management could in fact also decide to sign a young centre-forward to complete the department, give Giroud is 34 and Ibrahimovic will turn 40 next season.
