EPL: Giroud reveals where he will play after leaving Chelsea
Written by darling on September 6, 2019
Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, has admitted he is open to an exit in 2020 and says the Major League Soccer (MLS) could be his next destination.
Giroud penned a new deal at Stamford Bridge over the summer but will be out of contract next June.
The 32-year-old told RMC Sport the MLS would be an “interesting” option but admitted he could be tempted by other opportunities when he eventually leaves Stamford Bridge.
“MLS, for my family, my children who speak English, it is interesting.
“In a year? Two years? I don’t know when.
“But of course, I will be opened to a new challenge.
“It is not only MLS which could interest me,” Giroud said.
For the time being, Giroud says he is happy at Chelsea and delighted the club activated an extra one-year extension on his deal.
He added: “There has been no discussions because the club had an option for an extra year and they took it because they were happy with my contribution to the club.
“It is even more than that. There is real trust. It was not really my desire to leave anyway so I never asked myself about a possible departure.”
Giroud has started just one Premier League game under Frank Lampard, making two further appearances off the bench.
