Christian Pulisic Future at Chelsea: ‘Decision Will be Made Soon’

Christian Pulisic

One of the recent swings in the transfer window has revolved around Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic who has attracted interest from Manchester United and Newcastle United.

According to Fabrizio Romano, this situation will be resolved quickly as a “decision will be made soon” amid interest from two Premier League teams. Romano’s report indicates that both inquiries for the winger involved loan deals rather than permanent moves.

It hasn’t helped that the Manchester side’s only serious contact was made a week ago.  The Magpies also get a mention in the Pulisic sweepstakes but Romano doesn’t provide many details, possibly because there aren’t any.

Despite making 118 appearances in a blue shirt Pulisic has rarely been one of the first names on the team sheet. His tally of 25 goals is also a lot less than the contributions fans were used to from his predecessor. The American winger has talent, but it’s unlikely he will get to show it when competing with Kai Havertz, Raheem Sterling, and other attacking options.
