Talks ON: Zidane makes ‘HUGE’ transfer decision as Chelsea player close to Real Madrid move?
According to Defensa Central via teamtalk, an agent has offered Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud to Real Madrid for just €5million this month.
The report doesn’t make it clear if the agent involved is Giroud’s agent Michael Manuello.
The Spanish champions are in the market for a striker following Luka Jovic’s departure on loan.
Despite being in need of a striker following the departure of Jovic, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane reportedly turned down the chance to sign Giroud as he does not fit their long-term vision.
Meanwhile, reports in Italy claim Italian champions Juventus are progressing in talks to sign Giroud after agreeing to offer the France international an 18-month contract.
However Juventus will have to match Chelsea’s asking price of £5 million for Giroud.
