Olivier Giroud is expected to undergo his Milan medical and sign the two-year contract on Monday after Chelsea accepted €1m plus bonuses.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the France international will fly in for his tests at the start of next week and put pen to paper.

He had agreed personal terms months ago for €3.5m per season, with an expiry date of June 2023.

The only issue was finding an agreement with Chelsea, who activated their unilateral option to extend his contract, whereas the Rossoneri were convinced they’d be able to sign him as a free agent.

Multiple sources in Italy today claim the deal has been struck, with Chelsea accepting €1m plus another €1m in rather difficult to complete performance-related bonuses.

Giroud will play in Serie A and the Champions League for Milan, who had already attempted to sign him last season.

The centre-forward turns 35 at the end of September.

However, the France international will leave a legacy at Chelsea despite limited game time at Stamford Bridge and perhaps, Chelsea FC fans and players will miss him a lot when he goes, not just on the pitch but around the training ground, his experience for the younger players, and his attitude has been one of the best, he is an absolute role model for any young pro’s. Thank you and good luck Oli!!
