Oliver Giroud Eager To Take A Massive Pay Cut To Reunite With Former Boss Antonio Conte At Inter Milan.

Inter Milan are close to reaching an agreement with Chelsea striker Oliver Giroud, as the Italian are prepared to offer him a two-year contract deal with an annual salary of €6.5million.

The Frenchman is willing to take a massive pay cut, as his £135,000 weekly wages would be slashed in order to see him force a move and seal a reunion with former boss Antonio Conte in Italy.

Giroud who joined Chelsea in January 2018 from rival club Arsenal, would see his current contract with the blues expire this summer, and he doesn't intend to extend his stay at the club.

The 33-year-old was due to have left the club during the January transfer window amids several transfer speculations, but Chelsea reluctantly refused to let him depart having failed to sign a replacement.

Italain newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport reveals how Inter Milan are on the verge of teaching a deal with the former Arsenal player;
"On the table is a two-year contract with the option for a third, so sought after by the player and able to be activated either by the club or after a set number of appearances are reached."

The 2018 world cup winner, has fallen out of favour from Frank Lampard squad, as he has failed to command a starting shirt with the team this season.

He only recently started featuring more for the blues, following an injury to top striker Tammy Abraham, and due to an unconvincing display by Michy Batshuayi, Frank Lampard had no other choice than to give Giroud a chance.

CloudNine Sports understands that Giroud scored his first Premier League goal this season in the London derby game against Jose Mourinho Spurs team on the 22nd February at Stamford Bridge, which ended 2-1 in favour of Chelsea.

He has scored 3 goals in 13 appearance across all competitions and this season, and two of those goals came in the vital victories over Tottenham and Everton in the Premier League, before the supension of all football activities in England.
