Olivier Giroud made the switch from Arsenal to Chelsea in January 2018, and the 32-year-old has proven to be an important player for the club.

The Frenchman has scored 19 goals in 67 appearances across all competitions since making the move to Stamford Bridge, and he committed his future to the club during the summer, as his deal was set to be up.

The World Cup winner doesn’t know if he will be at Stamford Bridge after this season, but he has admitted that his future could be at MLS.

“The MLS for my family, my children who speak English, it’s interesting,” Giroud told RMC Sport’s Breaking Foot.

“In a year? In two years? I do not know when. But of course after that I will be open to a final challenge.”

Chelsea had the option to extend Giroud’s contract for one year, and the club triggered it during the summer, and Giroud has revealed that he’s happy to remain in West London.

“There were no discussions because the club had an option for another year and they took it because they were happy with what I brought to the club,” the World Cup winner continued.

“It even went further than that, there is a genuine belief in me. Aside from that, it was not necessarily my desire to leave and I never really asked myself the question about a possible departure.”

Giroud still remains a key member of the French national team and was called up for France Euro 2020 qualifiers squad that would play at home to Albania on Saturday and Andorra on Tuesday.
