Roman Abramovich could be forced to take action as Chelsea star force exit.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich may be forced to come to the defense of Olivier Giroud as the Blues’ striker endeavors to force through an exit from Stamford Bridge. 

The Frenchman yesterday saw his contract with the Blues prolonged by a further year, despite holding talks with AC Milan over a likely free transfer to Serie A.

Chelsea’s resolution to prolong his stay means the London club can now stop the striker from departing for free of charge and is now likely to result in a transfer fee being negotiated for the services of Giroud.

The 34-year-old has starred heavily from the bench this season and started only eight Premier League games throughout the campaign.


Giroud’s next stop is very much down to Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia, who is due to speak with Milan on Monday to discuss the situation.

Granovskaia showed her ruthless side by activating Giroud’s extension to bequeath the ball in Chelsea’s court as they look to draw a fee for the striker.

Tensions between the two clubs have risen as a result of this contract extension, according to Italian publication Gazzetta Dello Sport, leaving the former Arsenal striker in a tough position.

Giroud is keen to depart the club as his relationship with manager Thomas Tuchel is portrayed as being at an ‘all-time low’.

Chelsea had assured the experienced forward that he could leave the club and Giroud is now preparing to take advantage of his relationship with Abramovich to make this a happening.

It is understood that Tuchel is targeting a world-class striker this summer as the Blues look to scale a title charge next campaign.

Romelu Lukaku, Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are among the stars that have been listed as possible arrivals, which would further limit Giroud’s chances of playing time.

Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is absolutely open to the idea of Giroud joining him in attack next summer and was upbeat about the likelihood of a deal being agreed before the one-year extension being announced.

“The more high-level players we can sign, the better,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“[Olivier] Giroud has great experience and we don’t have many players who have won trophies.

“If he comes, he is welcome. This is a very helpful group, willing to learn and improve, a well-guided group.”

Giroud later replied to these comments, telling RMC Sport:

 “Ibrahimovic wants me at AC Milan? It’s always a pleasure to hear Zlatan say this kind of things, I’ll take it as an extra motivation.

“My future? I don’t want to talk about it, Milan is certainly an option among other ones.”
