Olivier Giroud has joined Italian Serie A side AC Milan from Chelsea, both clubs announced on Saturday.
Milan did not specify the transfer fee or the length of the contract but British media reported that the club would pay around €1 million for the player, who is expected to sign a two-year deal.
The 34-year old France international striker scored 39 goals in 119 games in all competitions for Chelsea and helped the London outfit claim the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup after joining them from Arsenal in 2018.
Giroud thanked Chelsea’s fans, players and coaches for “special moments” before his switch away from the Premier League club.
“To all the Blues, to my teammates, to all my coaches, to the whole club, a huge thank you for these special moments,” Giroud tweeted.
“I’m starting a new journey with a light and happy heart. Our victories in the FA Cup, Europa League and Champions League have been magnificent.”
