Olivier Giroud Set to Move to AC Milan; Bids Farewell to Chelsea on Social Media

Olivier Giroud is set to announce his move to the San Siro by bidding farewell to Chelsea on social media.

The World Cup-winning France striker teased the Milan switch by revealing he would be embarking on ‘a new journey with a light and happy heart’.

The 34-year-old won the FA Cup, Europa League, and Champions League in three years at Chelsea, having joined from Arsenal in 2018.

‘To all the Blues, to my team-mates, to all my coaches, to the whole club, a huge thank you for these special moments,’ Giroud posted on Twitter.

‘I’m starting a new journey with a light and happy heart.

‘Our victories in the FA Cup, Europa League, and Champions League have been magnificent.’

The ever-dependable Giroud bagged a goal in Chelsea’s 4-1 Europa League final win over his former club Arsenal in 2019 final in Baku.

And the France hitman then played a crucial role in Chelsea’s run to the 2021 Champions League crown too.

Giroud became the oldest player to net a Champions League hat-trick when claiming all the goals in the Blues’ 4-0 win at Sevilla in December 2020

He also scored the only goal in the Blues’ 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the last-16 first leg, with the Stamford Bridge men eventually defeating Manchester City 1-0 in the final in Porto

Giroud’s west London exit is expected to be followed in the coming days by defender Marc Guehi’s move to Crystal Palace.
