Giroud ‘surprised’ by Juventus reports

Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud was ‘surprised’ by reports linking him with Juventus. ‘It is a long way off the truth.’

Sky Sport Italia had suggested last night that Juve were keeping Giroud on the back-burner as a potential option after running into difficulties for Luis Suarez and Edin Dzeko.

It was claimed the deal could be done for €5m and that the striker had already agreed a two-year contract worth €4.5m per season.

“I was surprised when I received messages from friends talking about the Juventus rumour,” Giroud told Telefoot today, as reported by Get French Football News.

“It is a long way off the truth. I am a Chelsea player and I feel good here. I didn’t have a great end to last season just to leave again without showing a bit of faith.”

The France international turns 34 later this month and only extended his Chelsea contract in May.
