Contract terms agreed. Player close to leaving Chelsea

According to Italian media outlet Calciomercato, Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has reached an agreement with AC Milan ahead of a potential move to the San Siro this summer.

The 34 year old striker has reportedly agreed terms with the Rossoneri over a two-year deal worth €4M.

However, AC Milan will reportedly only go ahead with the signing if Giroud is available to be signed on a free transfer, which following the extension of his contract, is of course not the case.

The report claims Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia gave Giroud her word that he would be allowed to leave Chelsea on a free transfer this summer should he be moving to a foreign club, rather than a Premier League rival.
