Olivier Giroud’s contract with Milan is set to expire in June but the Frenchman is positive that a new agreement could be found soon.
He has confirmed his wish to stay at the Rossoneri during an interview (via Milannews) he gave to DAZN, on the eve of the Atalanta clash scheduled for Sunday night.
“My goal is to continue with Milan and I hope to find a new agreement. We’re talking and I believe things will go for the best”, Giroud stated.
It has been reported the Giroud is asking for a raise in his salary. Currently he’s earning €3.7 million per year bonus included and he’s aiming for €3.7 million per year plus adds on.
The last meeting between the parts has taken place in early February and Milan have proposed a €3,5 million salary per year plus adds on.
Giroud joined Milan in 2021 and has since ended up scoring 25 goals in 68 games across all competitions and he was quite crucial in helping the team winning the Scudetto last season, the first for the club since the 2010/11 season.
In January, he received an offer from Premier League’s side Everton but he turned down the proposal hoping to continue with the Rossoneri. Milan also rejected the move as they didn’t want to sell the Frenchman.
