Former Arsenal and current Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, has admitted to the idea of an exit from Stamford Bridge in 2020 and he says the Major League Soccer (MLS) could be his next destination to play active football.
Olivier Giroud who left Arsenal and signed for Chelsea two years ago will be out of contract by June next year.
The French national team striker told RMC Sport that Major League Soccer would be an ideal place for him to go but he also admitted he could be tempted by other opportunities when his contract at Stamford Bridge expires.
“MLS, for my family, my children who speak English, it is interesting.
“In a year? Two years? I don’t know when.
“But of course, I will be opened to a new challenge.
“It is not only MLS which could interest me,” Giroud said.
Olivier Giroud also said he is very happy at Stamford Bridge and delighted that Chelsea activated an extra one-year extension on his contract.

Olivier Giroud added:
“There has been no discussions because the club had an option for an extra year and they took it because they were happy with my contribution to the club.
“It is even more than that. There is real trust. It was not really my desire to leave anyway so I never asked myself about a possible departure.”
For the time being, He has featured in just one Premier League game under Chelsea’s new coach, Frank Lampard, making two further appearances from the bench.
