Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been announced by AC Milan and Christian Pulisic is just one step away from the club. Present at the Formula 1 GP today, Chelsea defender and former Rossoneri man Thiago Silva spoke about the two players.
Thiago Silva played for Milan between 2009 and 2012 before joining Paris Saint-Germain along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Currently, he’s at Chelsea and he certainly knows a lot about Loftus-Cheek and Pulisic.
Interviewed by Sky Sport, as cited by Pasquale La Ragione, Silva was asked about the imminent move of Pulisic to Milan. The defender said that he expects both the American and Loftus-Cheek to do very well at the club.
“Pulisic is a great guy and he’s a fantastic player. Last year, he had few chances. At Milan, he will certainly do very well, just like Loftus-Cheek,” he stated.
Loftus-Cheek arrived for €20m including bonuses and Milan have reached an agreement with Chelsea for Pulisic at €20m plus bonuses. The Rossonerr are hoping that both can blossom after struggling to get playing time in London.
