Chelsea extends striker Olivier Giroud’s contract
The Chelsea club activated the contract clause of French striker Olivier Giroud, which allows the London club to extend the contract for an additional year.
According to Sky Sports, Chelsea exercised its option to extend Olivier Giroud’s contract until 2021, so he could not leave in the summer of 2020.
Jiro was to become a free player at the end of the season and was already close to leaving Stamford Bridge last January, after two offers from Lazio and Inter.
Jiro has started just nine games this season, scored three goals, and has already stated that it dissatisfies him with his position with coach “Frank Lampard”, who sits constantly on the seats of the duo “Graham Abraham” and “Michi Pashaway”. “.
It should be noted that the “ESPN” network made it clear that the option to extend the Giro contract is a temporary solution for Chelsea, pending the “grand” agreement by signing the Arsenal striker Pierre Emeric Aubameyang, whose value is 50 million euros in the transfer market.
