Giroud completes AC Milan move

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has completed his move to AC Milan for an undisclosed fee after three years at Stamford Bridge.

The France forward joined Chelsea from Arsenal for £18m in January 2018.

The 34-year-old thanked Chelsea on Twitter for the “special memories”, saying he’s “starting a new journey with a light and happy heart”.

He wrote: “Our victories in the FA Cup, Europa League and Champions League have been magnificent.”

Giroud added: “To all the Blues, to my teammates, to all my coaches, to the whole club, a huge thank you for these special moments.”

He scored 11 goals in 31 appearances for European champions Chelsea last season but only made eight Premier League starts.

Chelsea signed Germany forwards Kai Havertz and Timo Werner last summer, which meant Giroud had reduced game time in the 2020-21 league season.
