Milan Star Giroud Freshly Linked with MLS Transfer

Olivier Giroud is giving serious thought about moving to the MLS at the end of the season. He’ll make the call in May, but such a possibility is gaining steam. The talks between his entourage and the possible landing spots have ramped up, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays.

The veteran would prefer to play either in New York or Los Angeles, which have four franchises combined. He’s still going strong despite being 37. He has scored 14 goals so far and needs one more to match his most prolific campaign with the Rossoneri.

According to the publication, the choice won’t simply be technical or economical but will be tied to what Giroud envisions doing in the future and his family’s priorities. He’d like to become an exec after retiring and could replicate what Giorgio Chiellini did.

The hierarchy is tracking several potential heirs, such as Joshua Zirkzee, Benjamin Sesko, Jonathan Lille, and Viktor Gyokeres.

Instead, per ESPN, the marksman will wait for an indication from his current team first, as he wouldn’t mind staying put. He’d move across the pond if Rossoneri didn’t offer him a renewal or if it didn’t meet his requests.

Our Take on Giroud and the MLS

There’s decent smoke, but it’s not decision-time yet. Since Milan are hell-bent on signing a young center-forward, it might also depend on whether he’d accept a reduced role compared to the last few seasons.
