Frenchman urges £54M star to get Chelsea deal done

Olivier Giroud has urged one of his former CHELSEA team-mates to join him at AC Milan this summer.

Pulisic has taken in 140 appearances for the club, becoming the first American to grace a Champions League final in the process, but has mustered just one goal and seven Premier League starts in the 2022-23 campaign

That has led to many reports in the media which has claimed that he is one player that the club are open to selling at the end of the season, especially with all the players that could come to the club.

Giroud hopes AC Milan take advantage of the clear-out in west London by signing his former Blues team-mate Christian Pulisic.

‘I think everyone would like it,’ Giroud said on the prospect of Pulisic joining AC Milan.

‘He’s a big name in Europe, so that would help us. He is that kind of player with great skills, with great talent.

‘He is a cheerful boy, always smiling and we laughed a lot together.

‘Our understanding on the pitch was also excellent, a bit like with Eden Hazard, even though I played less with Christian. We knew how to find each other.’

USMNT legend Eric Wynalda has recently told the Action Network’s Wondergoal Podcast: “One thing we do know, CHELSEA has muddied the waters so severely that there are no roads back to London for Christian Pulisic.

“Christian Pulisic has been rumoured to just about every top club in Europe – Newcastle seemed to be the most believable about two months ago but they have slipped a bit and no longer look to be the destination.

“The number (Pulisic’s transfer fee) is rumoured to get as high as $60 million. The other teams which could be his next home are all fighting for a Champions League spot and will be the determining factor. Those teams are not just in England but, Spain, Germany and Italy.”

“AC Milan is the most interesting for that category who will need to find their form to hold off several storied clubs for the last UCL spot in Italy. If Milan can pull it off, securing a fourth place finish or higher, they would be his best choice in my opinion.

“Real Madrid have yet to make a clear written offer, but if they do they will win this competition for his services. Newcastle would be about the money. A move back to Germany would be about familiarity. Milan would be about the story – Real Madrid would be about the perception.

“Either way, his new club will make most of the transfer money back in shirt sales. Just don’t ask for the number 10 this time!”
