Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud: France return could happen

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has confirmed he'd be open to a France return this summer.

Off contract in June, the veteran centre-forward is yet to discuss new terms with the Blues.

"I have never ruled out a return to France, I have very good memories of Ligue 1 with Montpellier," said Giroud.

"And surely, one day I will come back to France, but I do not know when and I do not know where. I know that several clubs are interested and if I'm free in June, I had the choice and I hope to make the right choice as I have always done."

Both Lyon and Marseille have declared an interest in Giroud.
