Football SPORTS GIST TRANSFER GIROUD CLOSE TO JOINING AC MILLAN By Admin Posted on 3 weeks ago 1 min read 0 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Chelsea are close to agreeing to sell Olivier Giroud to AC Milan for £1.7 million. The 36-year-old France international will go to Italy for a physical before completing a €2 million transfer to Milan as personal terms have already been agreed between Giroud and AC Millan. The Serie A team will pay an initial price of €1 million plus a further €1 million in add-ons based on the player’s appearances and the club’s qualifying for the Champions League group stage next season. Last summer, Giroud signed a new one-year contract with Chelsea, and the club recently exercised an option to extend it for another 12 months. During his spell at Stamford Bridge, the striker has scored 39 goals in 119 games, earning three major trophies, including the Champions League title in May. Giroud was part of France’s dismal Euro 2020 campaign, which saw them eliminated on penalties by Switzerland in the round of 16 after a 3-3 extra-time draw.
