There is a chance that Samuel Chukwueze could get his first start for AC Milan in the biggest game of all: the Derby della Madonnina that comes after the international break.
Christian Pulisic has started all three league games on the right wing so far due to the fact he joined earlier in the summer and has thus had more time to learn Stefano Pioli’s instructions and get to 100% condition.
He has rewarded the head coach for his trust by scoring twice already, meaning that he is considered by many to be undroppable at the moment, while Chukwueze – who arrived in a deal worth €28m – has been coming off the bench.
However, our colleagues at SempreMilan.it report that Chukwueze could already have a big chance to show what he can do as a starter in the derby against Inter on September 17.
The former Villarreal winger will leave to represent the Nigerian national team but he will also be the first to return to Milanello given that, unlike his team-mates, he will only play one match on September 10 against São Tomé e Príncipe
He could therefore be the chosen one to play on the right wing in the derby, especially given that Pulisic – as well as Yunus Musah too – will be the last to return from representing the United States.
