Giroud made only 17 appearances for the Blues in the Premier League last season scoring four goals.

But Chelsea announced they had secretly triggered a clause to extend his deal for a further year.

However, the veteran appeared leave the door open to Milan by claiming it was Chelsea’s decision, and not his, to activate his contract extension.

Giroud said: “I want to make it clear that Chelsea reactivated the clause in April.

“And they recently announced it to comply with Premier League rules.”

Giroud went on to praise two of Milan’s legendary strikers before calling the Italians one of the continent’s best sides.

He added: “It’s fair to remember that I liked Marco van Basten and Andriy Shevchenko.

“Milan are a big club and one of the great teams in Europe.

“But today, I will not talk about my future at the club because I am focused on the France team and the Euros, which is fast approaching.”
