Olivier Giroud could land at Olympique Lyonnais during the next winter transfer market. Chelsea are ready to let go of the World Cup.
But we know, the international French hopes have been followed for several weeks by Manchester United for the next winter transition window. Until now, Jean-Michel Aulas had systematically closed the door for departure from the former Celtic Glasgow. Nevertheless, according to the information obtained by Soccer Link, Boss des Gones has changed his mind. In fact, JMA would no longer be opposed to a departure from Moussa Dembélé, if this transfer allowed the Olympics to achieve a nice added value with a player purchased 22 ME a year ago.
And if Jean-Michel Aulas is now ready to sell Moussa Dembélé, it's because he has an idea behind his head. A big fan of the man and player, Aulas would love to link the services of Olivier Giroud, in a dangerous situation to Chelsea and who must imperatively revive in January if he wants to play Euro 2020 with Team of France. Also, according to the media, staff at the Olympics would have contacted direct agents for the player to show their interest. For his part, Didier Deschamps said to the tip that he would have to find time to play if he wants to be in the tricolor group for Euro. It remains to be seen whether this deal can be signed this winter in the transfer window, while Giroud has always announced his love for the Premier League.
Update: This Wednesday, the English press confirm that Olympique Lyonnais could actually afford Olivier Giroud from the winter transfer window, with Chelsea not retaining the tip of the tricolor. It remains to be seen whether an agreement can be found, especially financially, the English salaries are not identical to those proposed in France.
