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.
Very good to have such player.but he should avoid the number 9 jersey which depicts Hardlines for the club.uma
When you just won champions league, normal rules don’t apply to you. I’d gladly accept the no.9 kit if I was him.
Welcome to Milan ! You may not be our long time striker but I believe you can still rise to the occasion
Useful player with CL experience. Hope has a good and healthy season ahead.
Am happy with his arrival…remaining one CM one RW and one additional striker
I wish you become a pipo Inzaghi, go watch his tape
Happy? Fucking off! Despite we’ve qualified CL, The Owner continuously have no money, and CHEAP, OLD, UNDERWHELMED continuously be targets, and continuously sell-blood will be the most archive money for the club!!!
get a time machine and go back to the berlusconi era then.
Two great #9, two great 5, two fast 11with an eye for goal. We need a solid 10. And meh, Castillejo could do good against mid table teams.
How Castillejo is still on ur team is my greatest surprise honestly! I swear if we don’t sell that lizzard and buy a proper right winger, i would be so mad at the management. Our attack was down bad from the right wing last season. We also desperately need a 4th midfielder cause i don’t regard Krunic as a replacement for Kessie or Bennacer. Then finally a proper AM is needed desperately. But how poor is milan really?? Our summer transfer budget is really below 60m??
Theoretically we already spent 60+. 25+ on tomori, 13 or so on Maigan, 7 on Tonali, 2 on diaz. .. The thing is, what we spent is just redeeming on eixsting loans. So far on NEW players we have only spent on the GK and now Giroud.The squad hasnt improved, we simply finalized some of the loans we had
So basically the 50-60 we spent hasn’t been on actually improving the attack. We need a cf with speed. We can’t have slow forwards in today’s game. We need a cam and rw to. Our cam needs to be fast to mainly bc of the system we play. He has to cover so much ground
We don’t need this waste. Buy a good CF. Milan can’t be that broke.
Name 5 clubs that had spent more than us so far.
He must change the number. Cmon
