Olivier Giroud would consider leaving Chelsea this winter, in search of playing time. This could interest some French clubs…
Even if Didier Deschamps started him for France-Sweden on Tuesday night in the League of Nations, where he found the way of the nets, Olivier Giroud heard the warning sent to him by the coach of the Blues in recent days. “It is in his interest that this does not last, for him, to remain competitive,” Deschamps explained about Giroud’s (low) playing time at Chelsea.
According to Téléfoot, the former Montpellier player would have made the decision to leave Chelsea this winter, so as not to mortgage his chances, with a view to Euro 2021. And according to our colleagues, three Ligue 1 clubs would be interested in his services: OM, which is desperately looking for a high-level center-forward; OL, who have courted him in the past; and Bordeaux, the most surprising destination, where “his friend Laurent Koscielny” evolves.
But Giroud would have other plans. His priority is to stay in England, and more specifically in London, where he will play when he arrived at Arsenal in 2012. The world champion would like to play in “a great European team”, which limits the tracks. And would favor the “three big championships” in Ligue 1, according to Téléfoot. One can imagine that it is, in addition to the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga or Serie A.
Olivier Giroud: “I don’t feel diminished, I’m in good shape. (…) I hope to have another three, four, five years at the highest level. It is the objective. “
