Giroud dismisses talk of Olympique de Marseille switch
Chelsea striker and World Cup winner Olivier Giroud has dismissed talk of a move to Olympique de Marseille and a return to France in the near future.
Chelsea's Olivier Giroud has dismissed speculation linking him with Olympique de Marseille as the World Cup winner has no immediate plans to return to France.
The 31-year-old was the focal point of the French team that won the World Cup earlier this summer, but there is no guarantee he will regularly lead the line for Chelsea given new boss Maurizio Sarri also has Álvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi in his squad.
Giroud happy at Chelsea
Giroud only moved to Stamford Bridge from Arsenal in January and started just six Premier League games for them last season, but the striker insists it is not his immediate ambition to head back to Ligue 1 amid rumours Marseille are keen on acquiring him.
"I have heard many things that have been said in the media," Giroud said in an interview with Le Dauphine. "In the near future, my goal isn't to return to France. For now, I'm a Chelsea player. I have no limits. I feel good physically, I'm still young. I have not set a date for my international retirement."
