According to Canadian SportsNet, relayed by the Major League Soccer’s website, the Vancouver Whitecaps contacted the French international (93 caps, 36 goals) and his agent for a possible transfer in 2020. Twelfth and last of the Western Conference, the Canadian team wants to strike a big blow on the market and therefore targets the current FIFA World Champion striker.

But of course after that I’ll be open to a last challenge. ” A few weeks ago, responding to RMC Sport, Olivier Giroud (33 years old) opened wide the door to a departure for the United States, without giving a deadline.
