The France international was delighted that Zlatan Ibrahimovic showed desire in having him at Milan; however, they are ‘one option among others,’ even with his contract expiring at Chelsea.

Olivier Giroud

, whose contract is due to expire on June 30, had an interview with RMC Sport and was quizzed about

Zlatan Ibrahimović

’s comment regarding him joining



I like his character and the way he has of expressing himself, even if his outspokenness can be a little fiery at times,”

replied Giroud.

“It’s good, I take it as extra motivation. I cannot talk about my future right now. Milan are one option among others. As I said, it’s always nice to hear Zlatan say that sort of thing.”

Despite Chelsea hinting that they had offered the unilateral choice to have his contract extended “back in April”, the 34-year-old’s retinue confirmed that he hasn’t changed his mind when he refers to joining Milan after he is a free agent. The French striker may decide to choose Milan as his next destination despite links from West Ham and New York City FC.

Chelsea exercised a unilateral option, but with the promise he’d be released if there was an offer from a foreign club,”

entourage Michael Manuello, Luca Antonini and Ciro Morabito told Calciomercato.com.
