Olivier Giroud has made a move from Chelsea to AC Milan of €2 million, as confirmation from both clubs.
The 34-year-old will wear the No.9 shirt for the Rossoneri and he is believed to have concluded a contract with Serie A on Friday with Giroud.
It marks the end of the spell at Stamford Bridge, where over a period of four years he has taken part in 119 competitions.
While the club and its supporters fought for game time during the 2020-21 campaign, the Frenchman was held highly esteemed with the decision to ultimately leave.
The former Arsenal striker had actually seen his contract extended by a year to 2022, although Milan, who have been keen on signing him for a while now, have completed a deal for an initial €1 million, with a further €1m due next year.
In total, the World Cup winner made 119 appearances for the Blues in all competitions, scoring 39 goals. He won three trophies with his former club, including the FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League.
Giroud’s exit to Milan signals the end of his time in England, where he spent the last nine years of his career, having joined Arsenal from Montpellier back in 2012.
In a farewell message to Chelsea and their supporters posted on his official Twitter account, Giroud wrote: “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.
