MLS and UAE clubs have sounded out Olivier Giroud’s availability for the summer with the Milan striker tempted by an experience outside Europe.

Football Italia transfer expert Matteo Moretto provides the latest updates on Milan star striker Giroud via Caught Offside.

The 2018 France World Cup winner is under contract at Milan until June, but it has not yet been decided whether he will continue at the Stadio Meazza beyond the summer.

His dream is to move to the MLS and some American clubs have already sounded out his availability ahead of a potential free transfer over the summer.

However, a move to the MLS is not his only option as Giroud has also received offers from clubs based in the United Arab Emirates.

For now, the experienced forward hasn’t ruled out any possibility, including staying in Milan, but he is very attracted by an experience outside Europe.

Giroud will make a final decision alongside his family in the coming months but may not prioritise a sporting project when picking his next club.

  1. Milan would be wise to hang onto him for one more season; he can still operate at the very highest level, and would be a great role model for any young striker they sign during the summer.
