Giroud, who was seen wearing a mask with the AC Milan badge on it, waved to the cameras and posed for photographs before he left the airport in a 4×4 BMW by a club associate.

 

The former Arsenal striker will undergo his medical at Milan’s training base on Friday before putting pen to paper on a two-year contract worth £3million a season.
