No chance. Why would a club sell a player who cost almost 200m, whos eclipsed Neymar who cost 220m, as the main man of their team and is significantly younger.... if Mbappe goes for 200m Id be so surprised. They will have significantly undersold him.

Because they risk losing him for free the following year.

It will never come to that. Youd be mad if youd think Paris would keep him for that long and risk that. They were going to be offering him a new deal but because of the wages hes currently on and what Neymar is on, its complicated. They will get over 275m for if they go to sell this upcoming summer, 100%.

Giroud nets winner as France beats Moldova 2-1 in qualifying

PARIS

Olivier Giroud scored the winning goal from the penalty spot as a lackluster France rallied to beat Moldova 2-1 on Thursday to move ahead of Turkey in their European Championship qualifying group.

Giroud confidently smacked the spot kick into the left corner in the 79th minute after left back Lucas Digne was tripped running onto a return pass from Kylian Mbappé. It moved Giroud onto 39 international goals and just two behind Michel Platini in France’s all-time scorers’ list, which Thierry Henry tops with 51.

France had already qualified for Euro 2020 earlier Thursday because Iceland drew 0-0 at Turkey, guaranteeing France and Turkey the top two positons in Group H. France is two points ahead of Turkey and completes its qualifying away to Albania on Sunday.

But a sloppy and patchy performance, punctuated by missed passes and clumsy errors, annoyed France coach Didier Deschamps, who said he could have taken any of “five or six” players off at halftime.

It is obvious that Lampard doesn’t rate Giroud at all.

But we can’t sell him in January. We cannot continue to rely on Abraham throughout the season.

It is impossible for Frank not to rate Giroud. The problem with Giroud is that he is definitely gone after this season.

Giroud this season is still a Chelsea player, under contract and is collecting his wages from us. That shouldn't be the reason why he's now perma-benched until Abraham is injured.

I still don't rate Bats over Giroud. His highlight for Chelsea since scoring the winning goal to win us the league back in 2017, is his goal against Ajax.

But my bad, I forgot about Bats when I wrote the previous post.

The question is who should play Giroud or michy. Giroud is pretty much a goner after next season, whereas there is a chance for michy to be here.

Inter chief held talks with Chelsea over signing Blues ace in January during London trip

https://www.caughtoffside.com/2019/11/16/inter-chief-held-talks-with-chelsea-over-signing-blues-ace-in-january-during-london-trip/

It has been reported that Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio held talks with Chelsea this week over the possibility of signing Olivier Giroud in January.

The 33-year-old stalwart has struggled to secure regular playing time with the Blues so far this season, as he has been limited to just six appearances across all competitions.

Report: Crystal Palace must pay £5m for Olivier Giroud, plus £7m a year in wages

https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2019/11/22/report-crystal-palace-must-pay-5m-for-olivier-giroud-plus-7m-a-y/

Crystal Palace must pay a fee thought to be around £5 million for Olivier Giroud and pay the Chelsea striker £7m per season, according to The Daily Mirror [November 22, page 79].

Crystal Palace are one of the clubs being credited with an interest in Giroud, as well as Marseille, Montpellier, Lyon and Inter Milan.

But it is claimed that the Frenchman risks pricing himself out of a move, with Inter hesitating over his demands.

Chelsea risk losing this £10.8m-rated man if Lampard cannot utilise his talent – opinion

Ever since switching Arsenal for Chelsea Olivier Giroud has not been afforded the opportunities he might have wished for when arriving at Stamford Bridge. When deployed as a target man, he is a handful for defenders though sadly for him neither of his last two managers have had any interest in playing a forward in that mould.

So far this season the frontman has made just one Premier League start, with a further three appearances off the bench. Unsurprisingly such scant playtime has failed to produce either a goal or an assist. Though you only need to take one look at his goal-scoring record for France to realise there is still a phenomenal player in the 33-year-old, who is not being used to his full potential.

Across his last 14 competitive international fixtures, the FIFA World Cup winner has seven goals to his name. Not only are the goals important, but his link play in the centre of Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann is vital to the way Didier Deschamps attacks. The French manager has praised his strikers’ 39 goals in 97 international games, but also warned him about the dangers of being frozen out at Chelsea.

Here is the dilemma Giroud faces, swallow his pride and join a side further down the table, either permanently or on loan, or face an uphill struggle for substitute minutes at Chelsea. When put like this the decision appears relatively obvious, and it is likely there would be no shortage of Premier League suitors who are currently struggling to score.
