France striker Olivier Giroud has said his goodbyes ahead of his move to Serie A giants AC Milan after three seasons at Chelsea.
Giroud’s departure is set to be confirmed, with the big France forward taking to social media to pen a farewell.
The 34-year-old joined Chelsea from London rivals Arsenal back in 2018 and went on to win the FA Cup, Europa League and Champions League during his spell with the club.
He bagged 11 goals in 31 appearances across all competitions for the west Londoners last season and his transfer means that the striker finally has his future sorted.
Following France’s Euro 2020 exit at the hands of Switzerland in the Round of 16 on Giroud’s sole focus was on signing for Milan ahead of their pre-season training and now he has got his move and will return back to his holiday before moving to Italy.
He had penned an automatic one year contract extension back in April, allowing Chelsea to get a fee for the forward this window, with Chelsea honouring an agreement to let him leave.
After completing his medical Friday ahead of the move, the striker took to social media to announce his Chelsea departure.
“To all the Blues, to my teammates, to all my coaches, to the whole club, a huge thank you for these special moments.
“I’m starting a new journey with a light and happy heart. Our victories in Fa Cup, Europa League and Champions league have been magnificent.
“Love Oli G.”
