‘Veteran striker’ Olivier Giroud hoped to remain at AC Milan and continue his challenge on the European stage.
Giroud is now 36 years old. He passed his twilight years as a striker. It would not be strange to announce retirement right now. However, Giroud remains influential in the French national team as well as in his club AC Milan. He becomes the mental support of the players off the field, and takes the lead by showing off his age-forgotten performance on the field.
However, as of right now, he can’t guarantee to stay at AC Milan. His contract with AC Milan expires at the end of this season, as there has been no word of a renewal yet. 먹튀검증
On the 23rd (local time), Giroud said on the TV show of ‘Canal Plus’ in France, “I want to renew my contract with Milan. I won the hearts of the fans by winning the Scudetto (Serie A).” “I am in talks with the club. If given the opportunity to finish my career at AC Milan at a high level, I would definitely do it.”
Of course, there is a possibility that the negotiations will go wrong. This is because Giroud may show a lukewarm response from AC Milan because he is of considerable age as a striker. Regarding this, Giroud hinted that MLS would be an attractive option if a transfer to another team was unavoidable, saying, “There is also the possibility of choosing another option. I liked Major League Soccer (MLS) from before.”
