Back in April, EU’s antitrust chief offered Google a chance to settle an investigation into allegations of anti-competitive behaviour, taking a story further today to the next level, Reuters is reporting that the search giant has offered to settle the charges. EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia set an early July deadline to resolve the issue, and with doing it so in the same line, will cease the whole matter in one go.

“We have made a proposal to address the four areas the European Commission described as potential concerns. We continue to work cooperatively with the Commission,” Google spokesman Al Verney said in a statement on Monday although he declined to provide further details.
