Olivier Giroud (36) has put pen to paper on a contract extension with AC Milan, the Serie A champions have announced. The length of his new deal has not been revealed by the club.
According to Sky Sports, Giroud has signed a one-year contract extension. Last January, he received an offer from Everton but he turned down the proposal, hoping to continue with the Rossoneri. The France national team’s all-time record goalscorer opened the scoring during Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-finals return leg between Napoli and Milan – a goal that proved crucial with the Stefano Pioli-led side winning the tie 2-1 on aggregate. Milan will play their first Champions League semi-finals since 2007 and will play against either Benfica or Inter.
