Chelsea’s contract talk with Giroud on
Chelsea have opened talks with Olivier Giroud's representatives over a new contract after the France striker almost left the club in January.
The 33-year-old was resurgent before the Premier League stopped due to the coronavirus outbreak, after previously falling out of favour under Frank Lampard ahead of the winter transfer window.
Inter were the closest team to signing Giroud in January but Chelsea failed to find any attacking replacements to join in the window, leading to them keeping the France international.
Chelsea meanwhile will expectedly offer the Frenchman a new one year contract.
