According to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Daily Mail), Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud’s reunion with former manager Antonio Conte at Inter Milan will first have to overcome a few issues regarding financial and contractual terms.

Inter are apparently unwilling to match the striker’s €8 million per year salary — no surprise there! — nor are they willing to give him a 30-month contract, preferring instead to go with just 18 months — no surprise there either!

At 33 years old, Giroud will find it very hard to get a 2.5-year, high-wage contract at any team, and certainly should not be expecting to better or even match his current Chelsea deal. Of course, this is all probably just part of a negotiating process as the veteran third-choice striker looks for a new solution that will gain him some playing time at club level ahead of the summer’s Euro 2020 tournament with France.
