Maurizio Sarri has indicated that Olivier Giroud will not leave Chelsea this summer, whatever misgivings the France World Cup winner might have at not playing enough this season, and that the choice could be taken out of the player’s hands.

Sarri said after the Europa League quarter-final triumph over Slavia Prague, in which Giroud scored, that the club had an option to extend his contract by another year which they fully anticipated to take up. Giroud, who is the Europa League top scorer with 11 goals in ten games, had said before the second leg against Slavia that he was of a mind to leave in the summer to seek out greater playing opportunities elsewhere.

Speaking after the 4-3 win at Stamford Bridge, Sarri said: “He [Giroud] is sure [to stay] because the club has an option for another year, another season. I spoke to the club two days ago and we agreed to exercise the option. So, he will remain.”

Giroud is now behind Gonzalo Higuain in the pecking order having previously been the understudy to Alvaro Morata and said before the Slavia match that he wanted to be assured of “a more important role” or leave. With Chelsea still facing a two-window Fifa transfer ban the club are having to think very carefully as to whether any of their first team squad players will be permitted to leave this summer.
