Olivier Giroud has completed a €2 million move to AC Milan from Chelsea. The 34-year-old will wear the No.9 shirt for the Rossoneri and is understood to have signed a two-year contract with the Serie A club. Giroud made 119 appearances in all competitions over a four-year period at Stamford Bridge.

WHY HAS GIROUD LEFT CHELSEA?

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has left the club to join AC Milan on a free transfer. The World Cup winner made 119 appearances for the Blues in all competitions, scoring 39 goals. He won three trophies during his time at Stamford Bridge, including the FA Cup, Champions League, and Europa League.

GIROUD SAYS GOODBYE TO CHELSEA FANS

In a farewell message to Chelsea and their supporters posted on his official Twitter account, Giroud wrote: “To all the Blues, to my teammates, to all my coaches, to the whole club, a huge thank you for these special moments.

“I’M STARTING A NEW JOURNEY WITH A LIGHT AND HAPPY HEART. OUR VICTORIES IN FA CUP, EUROPA LEAGUE, AND CHAMPIONS LEAGUE HAVE BEEN MAGNIFICENT. LOVE OLI G.”

WHERE WILL GIROUD FIT IN AT AC MILAN?

Arsenal has signed Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud on a three-year deal. The Frenchman has been handed the No.9 shirt by his new club, which has not always been a good omen for Milan strikers of the past. Mario Mandzukic, Krzysztof Piatek, Gonzalo Higuain, Andre Silva, Alessandro Matri, Fernando Torres, Luiz Adriano, and Alexandre Pato have all struggled to hit top form wearing the same shirt number in the past seasons.
