Olivier Giroud has admitted he’s open to leaving Chelsea in 2020. The 32 year old also revealed the MLS could be his next destination.

Giroud will be out of contract next June and he is already considering his next options as he enters the latter stages of his career.

Giroud told RMC Sport: “MLS, for my family, my children who speak English, it is interesting.

“In a year? Two years? I don’t know when.

“But of course, I will be opened to a new challenge.

“It is not only MLS which could interest me.”

Giroud’s Chelsea contract expired at the end of last season but the activated an extra one-year extension on his deal.

Giroud admits he’s happy Chelsea activated the clause in the contract because he wasn’t really keen on leaving the club.

Giroud added: “There has been no discussions because the club had an option for an extra year and they took it because they were happy with my contribution to the club.

“It is even more than that. There is real trust. It was not really my desire to leave anyway so I never asked myself about a possible departure.”
