BREAKING: #Chelsea Sells Christian #Pulisic To Premier League Rivals?

BREAKING: #Chelsea Sells Christian #Pulisic To Premier League Rivals?—-According to Mail report, Christian Pulisic has attracted the attention of multiple Premier League clubs after putting in a Player of the Match performance in United States’ 0-0 draw against England at the World Cup.

TGM gathered that Manchester United, Newcastle United and Arsenal all have Pulisic on their radars ahead of the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old has just 18 months remaining on his contract at Chelsea and the Blues are considering the possibility of cashing in on Pulisic before the summer. Chelsea have slapped a £35 million price tag on the former Borussia Dortmund star.

Pulisic’s £58 million transfer to Chelsea back in 2019 has not really worked out. The winger was rated very highly as a youngster at Dortmund, but he has failed to replicate that form at Stamford Bridge.

It’s quite similar to Hakim Ziyech’s situation at Chelsea too. The pair haven’t really managed to get a consistent run of games, but we are seeing them shine at the 2022 World Cup. Obviously, there’s a top-quality player in there so Chelsea should be careful about selling Pulisic to a Premier League rival.
