But though Chelsea have been unsettled in attack this season, sending expensive import Alvaro Morata on loan to Atletico Madrid in January and bringing in Gonzalo Higuain from Juve on a similar deal, Giroud has remained a back-up.
Cech had previously announced that he would retire from playing at the end of this season.
So, if the Frenchman is not favoured in the Premier League and only scored two goals in its entire campaign last season, why have Chelsea chose to renew the services of a player who is undoubtedly on a substantial wage bill?
It has been a unusual season for the Chelsea player this season - the signing of Gonzalo Higuain kept him out of the team for the majority of the Premier League campaign.
The season is all but over for Maurizio Sarri after placing third in the Premier League standings. I really wanted to stay at least one more year. "I felt like part of the family straight away", said Giroud. "They are very talented, but it makes sense because Chelsea invest more in every transfer window and they buy more top players in the world who are more experienced".

Chelsea have been on the look out for a new football administrator following Michael Emanalo's exit last season. He is literally the only striker now at the club.
Hopefully, he is able to prove what a wonderful player he is when he becomes Chelsea's number one next season... if that is to be the case.
Giroud also helped the west London club win the FA Cup last season.
Cech enjoys legendary status at Stamford Bridge after 11 successful years at the club and has built up a close relationship with owner Roman Abramovich.
There is no doubting when Olivier Giroud is on the pitch he has a strong presence on it.
