Christian Pulisic will turn down a move to Lyon because he has his heart set on joining AC Milan this summer, according to a report.
The Athletic reported this morning that Milan made their first verbal offer for Pulisic which was worth €14m, and it is an amount not deemed enough by Chelsea, while Lyon have offered €25m and they seem inclined to accept.
However, ESPN are reporting that Pulisic will turn down Lyon after agreeing terms with Milan. While the French side have submitted a bid, it is less than the €25m reported and a significant portion of it is made up in add-ons.
Sources have told them Lyon are also unable to match the wages that the Rossoneri are offering and that the USA international does not see them as the right club, instead wanting to remain playing Champions League football.
Milan intend to make an improved offer after seeing their opening bid of €15m rejected, while the Blues are demanding €25m given they paid €64m to sign him in 2018 from Borussia Dortmund.
His time at Stamford Bridge has since impacted by injuries, but he has made 145 appearances across four seasons and was part of their Champions League-winning side in 2021.
