Christian Pulisic has told Chelsea he will not join Lyon this summer because he only wants to join AC Milan, a report claims.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, the attempt made by Lyon to convince Pulisic has not led to the desired results because the American has made it clear that he doesn’t want to go there.
Instead, he wants to join the Rossoneri and he has made that clear to Chelsea, who were on the verge of accepting a proposal worth around €25m made by Lyon’s American president Textor.
Milan are continuing to work with confidence towards the potential signing of Pulisic and an agreement has been reached with the player on contractual terms, but one with Chelsea is still missing.
CEO Giorgio Furlani presented an initial offer of around €15m while the Blues want €10m more to sell the 24-year-old, with the negotiation ‘going on like a game of chess’.
The next move by the Milan management will be to improve the first proposal but they consider €25m to be too high for a player who actively wants to join and whose contract expires in 2024.
New contacts are also expected in the next few hours, while Stefano Pioli is already waiting enthusiastically to work with the former Borussia Dortmund star.
