Drama in the France camp...

 

If he felt so personally attacked then Oli’s probably right or got a basis for it.

Otherwise why would he feel its about him 😂?

Sounds like Mbappe is worried for his place. Benzema back, Griezmann ended the season in form, Giroud always playing well for France NT. The Golden Boy might end up on the bench

No, cant see it that way... I think maybe Mbappe has preference to play with Benzema (likely also in the next club) so that is the reason.

Mbappe 'affected' by Giroud criticism

https://www.the42.ie/mbappe-affected-by-giroud-criticism-5465901-Jun2021/

KYLIAN MBAPPE admitted he was “affected” by public comments perceived as criticism from fellow forward Olivier Giroud following a friendly against Bulgaria, but insisted he did not want it to become a distraction for France at Euro 2020.

Tensions surfaced between the two players after Chelsea striker Giroud complained about not receiving the ball often enough during Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Bulgaria, in which he scored twice.

“I was a bit affected by that but we’re not going to make a big story about it,” Mbappe told reporters Sunday at the national training centre at Clairefontaine.

“We’re here to represent France and the national team represents the most important thing. We have a big competition and these trivial things aren’t going to disrupt our preparation.”

Mbappe, the leading scorer in Ligue 1 last season with 27 goals, revealed he had wanted to address the matter earlier in the week but was dissuaded from doing so by France coach Didier Deschamps.

“I wanted to come Thursday (to the press conference) to explain myself. After speaking with the coach, it wasn’t the best moment,” said the 22-year-old.

“He decided the best time was today, so I did as I was told and came today.”

The Paris Saint-Germain star claimed it wasn’t what Giroud said that bothered him, but the public nature of his remarks.

“I saw him in the dressing room, I went to congratulate him on his goals. He didn’t say anything to me and then I learned about it in the media.

“I would have preferred that he come and even be much more scathing about it. In the dressing room if I have something to say to someone I will tell them and it stays there, I don’t have a problem.”

But Mbappe sought to draw a line under the brewing feud ahead of France’s tournament opener against Germany in Munich on Tuesday.

“I don’t want that to disturb the team. We will already have very difficult tests, we don’t need to make things even harder.”

Giroud, 34, is France’s second highest scorer of all time, his 46 goals second only to Thierry Henry (51).

The world champions have a wealth of attacking options though with the return of Karim Benzema to the squad following a five-and-a-half year exile, and Antoine Griezmann also in the squad.

Les Bleus take on Hungary in Budapest in their second match in Group F and then face defending champions Portugal at the Puskas Arena on June 19 in a repeat of the 2016 final.

Can't believe Ac Milan have the nerve to ask us for a free transfer here. why would we bother with prolonign is contract if we were fine with having him leave on a free.

Pretty sure there was a clause that activated a few months ago, in April, Giroud said so himself IIRC. So maybe Milans interest didn’t materialise then? If they wanted him back then they really should have made an offer for him.

Looks like he is off to Milan for €2m. Personally, I don't see the point, I'd rather keep him than recieve €2m. 

its is a £7.5m net gain

as we remove his £5.7m salary from the books as well

pretty decent business by Marina

As for the culling, the real issue is more wages than fees, so it is kind of a case of every little helps.

Nah - I think we have extracted as much as we could from Giroud as a squad player. Best to part ways and sign a younger backup in case Tammy also leaves.

The way he looks after himself wouldnt be surprised if he'll still be playing for another 2-3 years

I think he'll thrive in Italy for another couple of years.

It's no coincidence that his best performances this season for us were in Europe where games are usually slower and more tactical then the frenetic pace domestically.

He'll be a very good signing for Milan, but he certainly goes with my blessing. For what looked nothing more than a short term stop gap to appease Conte, he's turned out to be a really effective and value for money buy. He's a bloody likeable and selfless personality too.

Well I didn't mean cull everyone regardless. I actually rate Giroud as one of the best options for a CF3 in Europe, I get his wages are highish but I think a €2m fee, or a £7.5m saving overall isn't worth it unless we are 100% getting Håland. 

I mean, if things go tits up and we have to panic buy someone to replace him, it is going to cost a lot more than €2m/£7.5m for the year.

Chelsea have always been fair with players that have given top service, it's something we never get credit for.

Giroud's professionalism here has been exemplary, especially after he was seemingly off 18 months ago and we cancelled at the last minute. There was no moaning and bitching he just put his head down and fought his way back into the reckoning. 

He's played that selfless squad role for a long time now at Chelsea, and at his age he fully deserves the opportunity to just be playing regularly. His game time diminished nearly as much as Tammy's by the season run-in. Particularly if he still has ambitions to play on for France and try to hunt down the goal scoring record (which I personally hope he does).

Apparently its basically done. €2m.

Rumours is he will wear number 9. Trying to find photo I seen of him with the shirt but unsure if real or not. 

Surely be doing rounds on twitter as well will try find link.

His best goal at the club is undoubtedly the bicycle vs Atletico. The dribble vs Southampton in the FA Cup Semi which he somehow finished with his right foot was also A great goal.
