Giroud who was part of France’s team that finished the EURO 2020 Championship in the Round of 16 after a defeat to Switzerland bid farewell to Chelsea via his Twitter handle.

“To all the Blues, to my teammates, to all my coaches, to the whole club, a huge thank you for these special moments.

“I’m starting a new journey with a light and happy heart. Our victories in Fa Cup, Europa League and Champions League have been magnificent,” he said.

He is a very reliable player, what we were looking for since we need experienced players like him. We are the youngest team in Serie A.”
