Olivier Giroud is to leave AC Milan at the end of the season and move to Major League Soccer.

The 37-year-old will end his three-year spell at the San Siro having scored 14 goals in 33 Serie A games so far this season.

The former Arsenal and Chelsea striker joined Milan from the Blues in July 2021 and helped the club win their first league title in 11 years in his debut season and reach the Champions League semi-finals the following year.

France’s all-time top scorer will move away from Europe for the first time in his career following spells in his homeland, England and Italy.

Milan have two games to go this term, travelling to Torino on Saturday before Giroud will get the chance to make his farewell appearance at the San Siro against Salernitana.

In an interview with the Milan website, Giroud said: “I am here to tell you that the next two games will be my last for Milan, my career will continue in MLS.

“I’m very proud of everything I’ve done here at Milan across three seasons.

“It’s the right time to announce it, excuse me I am a bit emotional. So, yeah, my story with Milan ends this year, but Milan will forever remain in my heart.”
