Erling Haaland has been linked with a summer move to Chelsea as Thomas Tuchel looks to bolster his first-team squad with the signing of a prolific centre-forward
Chelsea fans have a transfer theory that involves Olivier Giroud and Erling Haaland.
In April, as revealed by club director Marina Granovskaia, the Blues activated a clause to extend the Frenchman’s contract by a further year. Although, it turns out it was a tactic to receive a transfer fee.
If reports in Italy are to be believed then his exit from Stamford Bridge could be confirmed as early as next week.
That is because it has been claimed that Giroud is set to undergo a medical with AC Milan on Monday.
Furthermore, it is understood that the striker will sign a two-year deal with the Rossoneri after they finally reached an agreement with the Blues regarding a transfer fee.
The report also states that Chelsea have accepted €1m (£859k) plus another €1m (£859k) in rather difficult to complete performance-related bonuses, meaning the overall deal could reach £1.7m.
Despite Giroud not being a regular under Thomas Tuchel last season, his imminent exit would leave the German tactician short of a centre-forward for the new campaign.
