ESPN: Milan and Man Utd eye winger that cost Chelsea €67m but Juventus lead race

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea are willing to sell Christian Pulisic as part of a big summer clear-out and AC Milan are among the interested teams, a report claims.

According to what is being reported by ESPN, Chelsea are looking to offload Pulisic and they would accept a fee of close to £20m (€23m) despite having paid £58m (€67m) to sign him from Borussia Dortmund back in 2019.

Mauricio Pochettino has been confirmed as the new head coach at Stamford Bridge but he is not expected to oppose to the plans of the club’s hierarchy to listen to the offers that arrive for Pulisic, who has a year left on his deal.

Manchester United, Newcastle, Napoli, Milan and Galatasaray have ‘all been made aware of the player’s likely fee and salary’ as per the report, and they have discovered that he earns £13m (€15m) per season with the Blues.

It is Juve who are currently leading the race but they are reluctant to offer the same salary as what he currently earns, though it is possible the USA international would take a pay cut.

Pulisic made 30 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea in the 2022-23 season, scoring just once, and the influx of new signings for the attacking department risks seeing his playing time decrease.

  1. “it is possible the USA international would take a pay cut…” Funny Pulisic….Add a decimal point in between the 1 and the 3 and we can talk. Actually I still don’t think it’s worth talking.

  2. And let’s remind once again that EPL salaries are almost always in gross and in Italy they’re net salaries. Huge difference there too.

    1. Regardless, 15m gross in Italy is about 7.5m net. Still WAY too high. Even if he takes a 1/3 cut to 10m gross/5m net it’s too much (for us at least). Another overpaid EPL player.

  3. I mean, this is why Chelsea are having problems – the sad part is that they can afford to have multiple fringe players on crazy salaries and still not have serious issues.

    Chelsea will have to pay a high portion of his wage if he moves on, probably picking up 40-50% of it.

    But if Milan have Leao, he’d be completely unnecessary anyway. For Juve, he’d potentially be a good long-term replacement for Di Maria

    1. “But if Milan have Leao, he’d be completely unnecessary anyway. For Juve, he’d potentially be a good long-term replacement for Di Maria” -WTF are you talking about? We have had Leao for three seasons and we have needed a proper RW the entire time. Pulisic is a RW.

      1. Sorry, you are correct – brain fail because I remembered seeing him on the left earlier this season but that was when Chelsea were losing and throwing players all over the pitch. So ideal player but completely unaffordable?

    2. What? Pulisic wouldn’t play on the left, anyway. He’d play behind the forwards, where Diaz plays now.

  4. Ok Acmilan should just sign Tommaso baldanzi instead Loftus cheek then sign milikovic Savic then bring in Noah Okafor as centre forward with pulisic as winger it will help Acmilan alot then Acmilan can sign Seko Fofana in the defensive midfield and Acmilan should sell tomori and allow kalulu to continue in San Siro kalulu has better qualities than tomori he can play as right back can play as centre back no error at least tomori has cost penalty for Acmilan like twice which kalulu has not done.

    1. Why are people obsessed with Seko Fofana? Loftus-Cheek is one year younger, grew up in a club that perennially challenges for Europe in the top European league and has plenty of European competition experience. Fofana failed to gain a big move from Udinese and went to France and has ZERO European experience.

  5. Now Milan should pick this line up net season it’s superb
    Calabria, kalulu,Kjaer, Theo Hernandez
    Seko Fofana, tonali
    Sub salemakers, pulisic, baldanzi,thiaw,krunic, Geroud,Gabbia
