Chelsea star set for medicals with Serie A giants as deal reaches final stage

The 34-year-old is expected to leave Chelsea this summer despite signing a new one-year deal with the Blues last month.

Giroud’s move to AC Milan will finally materialize with a trade that will be finalized in less than a week.

According to reports, Giroud has agreed a two-year contract with the Rossoneri and Milan will pay Chelsea an upfront fee of €1 million with a €1 million add-on bonus.

Milan had been hoping to sign Giroud on a free transfer but Chelsea have managed to secure a fee, albeit little, for their forward because of their ability to extend his contract.

Giroud is now expected to fly to Italy next week to complete his switch where he will follow Fikayo Tomori who also joined Milan permanently.

Giroud netted 11 goals in 31 appearances for Chelsea last season and is currently on holiday following France’s early Euro 2020 exit.

During his time at the club, Giroud won the FA Cup, Europa League and Champions League, an extremely crafty signing after the Blues managed to acquire him from Arsenal in January 2018 for £18 million.

Now that his time is coming to an end in Chelsea, he begins a new chapter. Tuchel will now need a new center forward even more, especially with Tammy Abraham leaving probably this summer.
