The France international striker has been close to Juventus since Thursday night. A rumour that the world champion was keen to deny, it was clear that he remained fully involved in the Chelsea project.
On Thursday night, the news surprised everyone. The Italian press announced that Juventus were preparing to finalize the arrival of Olivier Giroud(33 years) from Chelsea. All parties have reportedly sealed an agreement for a transfer estimated at around five million euros. For his part, the world champion would have given his approval to the Old Lady for a two-season contract.
After his failure in the Luis Suarez case, the Italian champion was finally going to welcome this much-desired centre-forward. A surprised future transfer that caused some amazement in England. For if the Blues have achieved the arrivals of Ziyech, Werner, Havertz or Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr, the latter have never signalled to the French striker their desire to part with it this summer.
Olivier Giroud calms the game on the Juventus rumour
Giroud, who has signed a hot end to his season with the London club, wants to continue the adventure at Chelsea with whom he is under contract for another season. The main protagonist made a big focus on his future. The France international has been careful to deny a possible move to Juventus in the coming hours. “The Italians are getting excited a little quickly, I was very surprised to receive so many messages from friends on the subject, I’m very far from it,” commented Olivier Giroud first before justifying his position on the subject.
“I’m a Chelsea player I feel good here, I didn’t have my best end to the season to leave and not believe it ,he assured. I’m not going to give up and fight for my place. Chelsea and Juve are big clubs, it’s flattering. I’ve got my head here, we’ll see in the coming weeks what’s going to happen, I’d rather deny it and be clear about it. He denied the media report
