Giroud has reportedly decided to leave Chelsea in the summer.

Giroud still has plenty to offer, he’s proven that during his sporadic appearances, which have oftentimes been fruitful, but he’s wasting what’s left of his best years on the substitutes bench.

Don Balon report that Giroud is well aware of Chelsea’s intentions to sign a new striker this summer and knows he will be even further down the pecking order. As a result, he’s not going to renew.

It’s a blow for Chelsea, who have been able to boast one of the best reserve strikers in the world for several years now. Replacing him will be a tough ask.
