Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed that Olivier Giroud will stay at the club next season, despite the forward revealing he has received offers from other clubs.
Giroud has made just seven Premier League starts this season and said on Wednesday: “I am not happy to be the second striker.” He has made only six league appearances since the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain in January.
The 32-year-old sees his current deal expire this summer, but Sarri says Chelsea have agreed to activate a year-long extension.
Responding to Giroud’s claims he is unsure about his future, Sarri told Sky Sports News: “He is sure, because the club has an option for another year, another season.
“I spoke to the club two days ago and we agreed to exercise the option.
“So, he will remain.
