Winger ‘takes big step’ towards Chelsea announcement
Christian Pulisic has taken another step towards leaving Chelsea this summer, it has been claimed in the media.
The club now face the prospect of trimming Mauricio Pochettino’s squad ahead of next season and Pulisic is among the players who have been linked with a move away this summer.
The American star was hailed as the next big thing during his time with Borussia Dortmund – but it has not worked out for him at the club and he is now being linked with a move away.
The USA star scored 11 goals in his first season at Stamford Bridge but his contributions have gradually fallen away since then, with Pulisic starting just eight league games last term.
With the club set on trimming their bloated squad this summer, Pulisic is among the clutch of players tipped to move on with Lyon making him a ‘priority signing’ and have approached the player about moving to France, L’Equipe report.
However – it now seems that a move to Italian football is on the cards for the American.
According to ESPN, Pulisic has agreed terms with AC Milan ahead of a potential move
Progress towards finalising a deal this year has now been made ahead of Pulisic’s return to London, with terms not a problem. It is said that negotiations are centred around an asking price of £21.4million ($27.3m), but Milan are only wishing to pay less than £15million ($19m).
Look, Pulisic is a very talented player but if he wants to leave – then we will wish him the best if he goes.
