After the arrival of Alvaro Morata, Chelsea received another striker who is known for his late time converters. Olivier Giroud spent his six years of career at Emirates and joined the Blues this year after scoring 73 goals in 180 matches. Giroud though still not have done enough to impress being in Chelsea having only one goal in FA cup, still he has got a personality to attract the limelight.
Giroud has settled quite well at the Stamford Bridge he is well known for his sense of humours and recently Manchester United’s Paul Pogba is recently trolled by his brilliant sarcasm.
The players have all left for their international break this week for the friendlies leading up to the World Cup Russia 2018. France is gonna take up Colombia and the host side this time. French coach Didier Deschamps is confident about the side this time and looking to clinch the title by any means. France have a bunch of potential strikers like Griezmann, Lacazette and Benzema, where Giroud is often preferred by him.
The striker met up with the other players, including Pogba who seemed to have a new haircut for the international duty. Pogba is known for his odd styles and he never feels shy to wear outlandish clothes and sometimes rather bizarre haircuts. His recent hairstyle looks like yellow mohican style and it reminded Giroud of the Pokemon character Pikachu.
Pogba will be hoping that a change in hairstyle may change his fortune too. This international break may give him the chance to gain his lost form which may help him to shine in Manchester United. He has been benched several times at Old Trafford which may not secure his seat in World Cup squad.
The current scenario of Manchester United is sloppy yet respectable. They are now at 2nd position in the Premier League with 65 points, sixteen points behind the leaders Manchester City. Champions League journey has already been ended for the Red Devils in the round of 16 against Sevilla. The same condition is for Chelsea where they have been eliminated against Barcelona last week. Chelsea is now 5th in the league table and finishing in top 4 is looking tough for the defending champions.
The transfer window is gonna be hot and juicy for both the sides in Summer. Manchester United have got the proposal to give away David De Gea where they can gain Gareth Bale instead. The Welshman has expressed his desire to return in Premier League, as the Los Blancos side is keen to offload him. On the other hand, the Portuguese manager is targeting Barcelona man Marc Stegen to replace the Spanish goalkeeper. On the other hand, there are a huge speculations about the departure of Eden Hazard from Bridge. Hazard was one of the key men of the Blues to win the league title last season, but according to the sources the false nine formation of Conte has made him unsatisfied and it is giving him less chance to show his quality. The relation between Conte and Hazard has gone bitter too much such that if Conte get no sack this time, Hazard may leave the club.
