Both Milan clubs are interested in trying to get Olivier Giroud to leave Chelsea in favour of a new experience abroad, a report claims.
According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Milan seem happy to bet on Giroud despite the fact he is now 34 because they have identified the main critical issues in other areas of the pitch. With the renewal of Ibrahimovic, an important slice of the salary budget has been used and spending a lot of money on a new striker does not seem to be the primary strategy.
Giroud is also liked for his characteristics because he is physically strong and has an excellent sense of position. The Frenchman knows how to play with and for the team, and would fit into an already well-established technical game plan.
In short, it is anything but a gamble like the one that saw Mandzukic arrive. At Inter – who are also interested – he would be an alternative to Lukaku and Lautaro, while at Milan he would be a real co-holder of the role of first striker role. Giroud could play the place weekly with Ibrahimovic and be a pawn to be exploited even during the game. As for the contractual offer, €3.5m net per season should be enough.
