REVEALED: Family convincing Giroud to stick with Chelsea

Olivier Giroud isn't ruling staying with Chelsea beyond the January transfer window - and even into next season.

While he is courting interest from across Europe - and around the globe - the veteran striker hasn't wrote off the prospect of staying with Chelsea long-term.

Giroud's deal runs to June and he has been urged by France coach Didier Deschamps to find himself a new club for the sake of his place in the nation's summer Euros squad.

But Le 10 Sport says Giroud is favouring staying with Chelsea and in London, where is family are happy and settled.

The World Cup winner has already stated he won't be returning to Ligue Une should he depart Chelsea and the latest from his camp is that even leaving Stamford Bridge is no longer the favoured option.
