Olivier Giroud is in Italy and tomorrow he’ll make his first steps as a Rossonero.
Milan wanted an alternative for Zlatan Ibrahimović and after saying goodbye to Mario Mandžukić after his very disappointing six-month spell at the club, they moved to sign Olivier Giroud.
Despite the many difficulties along the way, agreements have been found with all parties involved in the situation.
Milan agreed to pay Chelsea €1m for the striker plus €1m of bonuses, while the 34-year-old gets a two-year contract worth €3.5m plus bonuses per season.
Today (Thursday) at around 18:15, a private airplane departed from Grenoble and landed at the Linate airport in Milano at around 19:00. Tomorrow, the player will his medical check-ups with the club before putting pen to paper and officially starting his adventure as a Milan player.
Giroud, who won the Champions League with Chelsea last season, took part in the EUROs with France and is therefore expected to begin training with Stefano Pioli’s squad on July 26th.
