In an interview with French media RMC, Giroud admitted that he was close to playing in Serie A in the summer.
Giroud was rumored in the transfer window that he might join Juventus, and Inter Milan and Lazio are also seen as his possible next stops.
Giroud said: "I can't rule out anything in the future, but I don't think I will return to Ligue 1. I want to compete in the top European competitions for another two or three years, and then I may go to the United States. Major League."
"I was close to a transfer to Serie A, where experienced players are very popular, but I ended up not playing in Italy. Who knows what will happen in the future? I will evaluate all the opportunities that may be obtained.
