Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has been linked with a January exit, with the likes of Juventus and Atletico Madrid believed to be interested in him.
At 34, Giroud has still proven to be an important player for club and country with 9 goals in 15 games for Chelsea so far this season.
It is expected that Giroud’s contract with Chelsea will wind up at the end of the season, but the Frenchman has revealed that Chelsea have the option to even extend his stay by a year more.
“My career, in the short term, I see it at Chelsea,” he told Le Dauphine Libere. “Now, we know things go quickly in football, both in good and bad ways. I want to keep my head clear and focus on the pitch. I’m coming to the end of my contract at Chelsea in June, even if we have the option of another year.
“We’ll go over things at the end of the year. But, once again, I have the ambition of winning something with Chelsea this season because I have a lot of hope due to the quality of our squad.”
