Milan are ready to close for Olivier Giroud within the next 48 hours. The distance between supply and demand is really minimal: on the Frenchman’s table a two-year period worth 3.5 million euros
What is about to begin is going to be a really busy week. As told, by June 16 it will be necessary to exercise the redemption of Sandro Tonali from Brescia. The agreement has now been reached, with an important discount, which will lead the Rossoneri to pay into the Rondinelle coffers. 15 million euros. The total saving, between the fixed part and the bonus, is about ten million but Brescia, who will be coached by Pippo Inzaghi, will also receive the youngster’s card Olzer, for which Milan should keep a buyback right.
Furthermore, the official announcement of Fikayo will not be long in coming Tomori, for which – as told – there have been no more doubts for some time now. Everything was decided a couple of weeks ago, with Chelsea going to cash in more than 28 million euros, as agreed in January. No discount but only a deferred payment.
Giroud arrives immediately
As La Gazzetta dello Sport writes this morning, these should also be the hours of Olivier Giroud. The deal is in the pipeline with the white smoke, which should arrive within the next few 48 ore. Contacts between the parties are expected already today, with the aim of closing: the distance is really minimal, with Milan which would have put on the plate an offer of 3.5 million euros net for 2 years and Giroud who would like 4. .
It is unlikely that the deal will not go through, also because the Frenchman’s desire to dress the Rossoneri is really a lot, and Milan, to date, has no certainty about the conditions of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. More will be known only in a few days, but the Rossoneri hope to have already made available to Pioli a new striker.
It is clear that to get your hands on Giroud you will need the green light from the Chelsea, with AC Milan not appearing willing to pay any compensation to the London club.
