Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 40-year-old Swedish striker, would be Olivier Giroud's partner, French striker Olivier Giroud, who would already have everything ready to be another of Milan's strikers, a team that in the 2021/2022 season will play in the Champions League in addition to the Italian League. 




According to AFP, a photographer from the international news agency caught the French striker landing at Linate airport in the Lombardy capital. His arrival would mean his imminent signing for the Rossoneri. Olivier Giroud, 34, most recently played for Chelsea, where he scored 39 goals in four seasons. Grenoble, Istres, Tours, Montpellier and Arsenal are the other teams he has played for in his career.


In addition, with the France national team, the striker has in his palmares the title of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. He is also the second all-time leading scorer of the national team with 46 goals, is still active and is five goals away from equaling the record of the top scorer, Thierry Henry.



The special thing about the Frenchman's arrival at Milán is that he will have to compete for a starting spot or share the front line with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the club's idol and reference point, who is 40 years old. The comments on social networks have given everything, so much so that between the two of them they have 74 years in the Rossoneri attack.



Ante Rebic Jens Petter, Rafael Leao and Daniel Maldini; are the other strikers who are in the discipline of the Milanese club that hopes to take revenge again after losing the League 2020/2021 against its historical rival, Inter. AC Milán, runners-up in the last Serie A, will kick off in the 2021-2022 Italian league in August at Sampdoria.
