It’s not over yet between Milan and Olivier Giroud and by the forward of the Chelsea new signs are coming. Speaking at the press conference after France’s retirement, the player answered a question about his future as follows: “I loved some of Milan’s players, it’s a great club. But I wouldn’t talk about my future, Chelsea activated the option in April. for the renewal and they announced it. I will not talk about my future at the club level, I am focused on the European Championships. “
MILAN LOCATION – Giroud winks at Milan who has not yet given up on the deal, but has set clear conditions: the operation can be closed but only at no cost and the hope of the club, player and entourage is that Chelsea will not oppose a termination of the newly renewed contract (until 2022) in the event of a specific offer from abroad.
THE CONFERENCE – Not only his own future, Giroud made further statements at the conference: “Kanté? He doesn’t like compliments too much, we are pleased to have him and we talk to him about the Golden Ball if he does some good Europeans, but we know his humility. He can. to have flaws, like when he plays cards (laughs, ed). He is extraordinary, he is a bit of our mascot. He deserves to get there. My role in the national team? It is normal that the media are enthusiastic about Benzema’s return, it’s an extra weapon. It’s the game. But the people who support me know that I’m here to put my brick, without making too much noise. I do my share of work, I’m fully behind the team, I have no discomfort , no grudge, I’m at peace. My relationship with Benzema? I haven’t had occasion to argue with him, it may be that we’ll talk about it, he makes me smile. I have no grudge for that. I will enjoy spending time with him, maybe afterwards. Europeans, I will invite him to a kart circuit if we win Euro 2020. The my physical condition? Preparing well for the Europeans is essential. The preparation was shortened. I feel very good, I have always worked at Chelsea even when my playing time was shorter, I don’t think I’m late, even if nothing replaces playing games. I’m fine. I am almost 35 years old but I am in great shape. Ambitions? You don’t have to limit yourself, I think it’s feasible (to become the top scorer of the Blues, ed). I am a hard worker, ambitious, I will do everything to get there, but it will never be at the expense of the collective. I am selfless, it does not obsess me. The return of Benzema? Deschamps didn’t warn me, I think he’s the only one who has to decide. He didn’t ask for my opinion (he smiles, ed). There are no comments to make. My role? Give my contribution to the team, to score and to score. Playing with Benzema? We have had the opportunity in the past so it’s not impossible. It could happen in some games, we are not incompatible. We have complementary qualities. Old clubs? I’ve put all the clubs I’ve been in at the same level, I’ve always learned from every stage of my career. I can’t propose one club more than the other. I was lucky to win some trophies, it was not the case with Tours even though we were almost up to Ligue 1. I am still in contact with people from Tours. The announcement of the squad? I have looked at the site very carefully, it is true that having had less minutes in the last few months it could be a burden. Nobody has a wild card, but I’m ready, the manager knows he can count on me at any time. My minutes have been the subject of discussion, but I have always replied as present in the club as in the national team, my effectiveness is always the same. Religion? It helps me put things in perspective. Knowing how to forgive is something that gives me peace, gives me a lot of serenity. Kanté? In his role he is a world reference, if not the best because it is incredible. He is clearly a contender for the Golden Ball. “
