The French center-forward of AC Milan Olivier Giroud extended his contract this Wednesday with the Lombard club until 2024.
Olivier Giroud, 36, the record holder for goals in the French team, has extended his contract with AC Milan by one year, until 2024, the Italian club announced on Wednesday. “AC Milan is pleased to announce the extension of Olivier Giroud’s contract,” wrote the reigning Italian champion on his website. This one-year extension will allow the top scorer in the history of the Blues (53 goals in 121 selections) to continue the Milan adventure until Euro-2024.
Arriving in the summer of 2021 in a luxury understudy role for Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the former Arsenal, Chelsea and Montpellier striker quickly made himself indispensable to the Rossoneri last season, scoring several decisive goals in the conquest of the club’s first Scudetto since 2011. The 2018 world champion remains the Milanese’s No.1 center forward this season, in particular due to the repeated absences of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 41.
