Chelsea will part way with Olivier Giroud who finally met agreements to join AC Milan
The Frenchman after his three years in West London will be departing for the Italian Serie A to join AC Milan.
Chelsea are expected to receive around €2m after managing to extend Giroud’s contract few months before his departure.
Although many thought extending his contract meant he was staying for long but the fans would really be sad to see him leaving.
Giroud cemented the fans love for him when he netted that over head kick goal against Atletico Madrid in Thomas Tuchel’s first UCL game in charge as Chelsea manager.

With the UCL trophy recorded in his name now, Giroud has a total of 11 trophies so far in his career of which 4 were won with Chelsea, while 6 with Arsenal and the rest with his former side, Montpellier.
Giroud made a total of 119 appearances for Chelsea of which he netted 39 goals as he mostly came on as a substitute.
His lack of game time never affected his character as he was mostly applauded for his professionalism and matured mentality towards handling such issues.
Giroud becomes the second Chelsea player to join AC Milan this season after seeing Fikayo Tomori pen a permanent contract with the Italians.
