Career reboot: Frustrated Chelsea star tempted by Italy move


Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic could be tempted to join AC Milan or Juventus this summer after growing frustrated by his lack of game time, according to reports, informs the FourFourTwo.

The USA international started just 13 Premier League games under Thomas Tuchel in 2021/22, and 20 in all competitions.

The Daily Mail has reported that Milan and Juve are both interested in the 23-year-old and Chelsea will listen to offers.

Pulisic recently spoke openly about wanting more opportunities at Stamford Bridge.

“Of course, I want to get more playing time,” he said while on international duty with the USA.

“I want to be on the field as much as I can and be the sharpest I can be, and fit as well.

“I think I still got a lot of games, but it’s always something that I’m working at and trying to be regular at club level as well to put myself in the best position to be fit when I come here with the national team.”

A lot was expected of Pulisic after Chelsea signed him from Borussia Dortmund for £58 million in June 2019.

But according to Transfermarkt, the attacking midfielder’s value is now around £40.5m, with two years left to run on his contract.

The two Italian clubs are unlikely to be able to afford huge transfer fees, so they could try and negotiate the price down.
