Chelsea transfer news: Olivier Giroud will be at Stamford Bridge next season, says manager Maurizio Sarri

Maurizio Sarri says Olivier Giroud will stay at Chelsea next season despite the forward voicing his doubts about his future at the club.

The striker, 32, has only started seven times in the Premier League this season and has only made six league appearances since the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain arrived in January.

Giroud has had to play second fiddle to Higuain in the second half of the season

The France international claimed he’s even had offers from other clubs in the lead up to Chelsea’s Europa League triumph over Slavia Prague – a game where Giroud scored a goal.

Giroud’s current deal is set to expire in the summer but his manager has revealed the club have agreed to activate a year-long extension.

On his player’s future, Sarri told Sky Sports News: “He is sure, because the club has an option for another year, another season.
