‘I am very happy to continue my trip with Chelsea,’ states Olivier Giroud who is reported to elongate his Chelsea agreement until June 2021.
This season the striker was going to be a free agent, and he was on the edge of moving to Inter in January, but he was stranded because other deals didn’t go through.
Though Lazio was also assumed to play for the 33-year-old, Antonio Conte had been dreaming for a reunion next term in San Siro.
Chelsea had considered the opportunity to increase the contract for another year, reported last evening.
“I am delighted to continue my journey and adventure at Chelsea. I can’t wait to get back to playing and enjoying competitive football with my team-mates,” he told the official club website.
“I’m looking forward to wearing the Chelsea shirt again, especially in front of our fans at a full Stamford Bridge, whenever it is safe to do so.”
