Christain Pulisic’ Future at Stamford Bridge in Doubt as Chelsea Open to Negotiation



According to sources, Christian Pulisic’s future at Chelsea is uncertain, with the club likely to consider transfer proposals for the attacker this summer.

Despite playing 22 times for the Blues in the Top Division and missing 9 games at the start of the season owing to Covid-19 and an ankle injury sustained while on USMNT duty, the 23-year-old was dissatisfied with his game time under Thomas Tuchel last campaign.

“For the time being, I’m obviously only concerned with what I’m doing here.” And I’m really pleased to be here,” Pulisic stated of his future with Chelsea. “And that’s all there is to it.”

“Of course, I’d like to see more action. I need to be on the pitch as much as possible, and I want to be as sharp and fit as possible.

“I believe I still have a lot of games left,” he says, “but it’s always something I’m working on and trying to be consistent at the club level to put myself in the perfect situation to be ready when I arrive here with the national football team.”

In the 2021/22 campaign, Pulisic scored eight goals, a figure that drew criticism from Tuchel, who chastised the entire Chelsea assault for their fecklessness in front of goal.

When asked if Pulisic’s finishing was a concern, Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte agreed, “Yeah, it is (a concern).”

“He is not the player who has scored 30 goals in the last 3 years.” We’re going to push him to his limits.”

Despite Tuchel’s vocal backing for the USMNT star, the Guardian reports that Chelsea is open to hearing and receiving proposals for Pulisic, as well as Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, this summer.

Romelu Lukaku is expected to leave Chelsea this summer, with the team in negotiations with Milan over a loan spell that would see Belgium forward leave after only one season at Stamford Bridge, having cost the club a club-record £97.5 million.

During the conversations, Technical and Performance Advisor Petr Cech was asked about the forward, and he predicted that he would have a successful 2022/23 season.

“I personally feel he will have a tremendous season,” he continued, “since we saw how powerful he can be at the start of the season when he came in.”

“Regrettably, the lengthy layoff he got against (Aston) Villa dragged everything significantly, and then he added Covid to the mix.” We could see how fit and ready to go he was towards the conclusion of the season, and how strong he is.

“We had a particularly difficult year as a team around Christmastime due to Covid difficulties, and he was one of those players.” I am confident that he will recover quickly and have a successful season

Meanwhile, Pulisic has piqued Liverpool’s interest as they seek to replace Sadio Mane, who has expressed his desire to leave this summer. However, because of the high financial costs, a transfer for Pulisic appears doubtful, with Liverpool pursuing Darwin Nunez of Benfica.n.”
