Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is on the verge of signing a two-year contract with Italian outfit AC Milan, and will head out to finalise the deal next week.
Sportsmail understands the final details of his pay structure within his contract at the San Siro are currently being ironed out, before the deal will move onto the medical stage and become a formality.
AC Milan had hoped to sign the World Cup winner on a free transfer this summer when his contract expired.
However, Chelsea activated their option to extend his deal by one more season, despite the forward previously complaining about a lack of game time.
As a result, Milan will now be forced to pay the striker’s £1million release clause on top of his £3m salary in order to secure his signature for next season.
