Giroud open to MLS move

The France international has been with the Blues for the past one-and-a-half seasons but he has yet to secure a regular starting spot.

Speaking to RMC Sport, Giroud said that he would be open to a transfer away from Stamford Bridge and a move to Major League Soccer could be a possibility in a year or two.

"The MLS for my family, my children who speak English, it's interesting. In a year? In two years? I do not know when. But of course after that I will be open to a final challenge," he told.

Giroud was left on the bench during the recent league clash against Sheffield United which ended in a 2-2 draw. The Frenchman witnessed Michy Batshuayi preferred ahead of him to replace Abraham for a cameo.
