Olivier Giroud has agreed a new deal with AC Milan, which will see him continue until June 2024. His previous deal was set to expire at the end of the season, in three month’s time. But following his performances this season, a verbal agreement has been reached over a one-year extension.
The Frenchman has been their reliable goalscorer this season, netting 12 goals and providing four assists in 34 games across all competitions. He became France‘s all-time top scorer at the World Cup as well, achieving a tally of four goals in the six games he played.
Olivier Giroud to continue with Milan until 2024
In spite of being 36 years old, the former Chelsea striker has been showing fine form on the pitch. He has been trusted by Didier Deschamps to lead the line for France in spite of Karim Benzema’s resurgence. But following the Real Madrid star’s retirement from international duty, Giroud is arguably the most experienced centre-forward available.
A salary worth €3.8 million has been agreed for Olivier Giroud to continue. There is only a verbal agreement between the two parties right now. And the official paperwork should be completed in the first half of April. The expected date is before their Champions League quarter final match against Napoli.
The bigger problem for Milan right now is to get Rafael Leao to sign a new contract. They haven’t been able to reach a breakthrough in negotiations with his entourage in spite of repeated discussions. And if there is no agreement for a new deal, he could be let go of in the summer.
