Milan striker Olivier Giroud says he wants to stay at the club and is open to extending his contract beyond this season.
The 37-year-old Giroud is under contract with Milan until the end of the season. Reports in Italy suggest that Milan wants to sign a young striker next summer, but they are also willing to extend Giroud’s contract for another year.
The former Arsenal striker has been linked with teams in Saudi Arabia and the MLS. He currently earns around €3.5m net per season at Milan.
In an interview with Le Journal du Dimanche, Giroud was asked about his plans for the future.
“My contract expires in June. I haven’t spoken about it with the club yet, but I would like to stay. I’m convinced I can still be useful to this team.”
Giroud already has scored eight times for Milan this season. The French striker joined Milan from Chelsea in 2021. He has scored 40 goals in 100 matches for the Italian club.
