Revealed: Chelsea's asking price for Man Utd target Christian Pulisic
Christian Pulisic has had a fine World Cup campaign so far and he added to that with the winning goal over Iran to secure the United States’ progression from the group stage.
He had been influential in the United States’ previous group stage matches against England and Wales and has been touted for a move away from Chelsea as a result.
The American hasn’t had a big impact on the Chelsea first team in recent times, having struggled to break through the first team as of late under Graham Potter.
Now, there has been plenty of interest in him, especially from several Premier League sides, and a move could be on the cards soon as his price has been revealed.
Chelsea eye big fee for Pulisic
Pulisic had a bright start to his Chelsea career under former boss Frank Lampard but has generally struggled since then as Thomas Tuchel and Potter played without him in their primary plans.
He had been linked with a move away in the summer transfer window with domestic sides like Manchester United and Newcastle interested in him.
However, a move for him never materialized and he ended up staying at Chelsea, but things still haven’t changed as time on the pitch is not as frequent for him.
Chelsea are willing to let him leave in January but it will have to be a permanent transfer and a loan move is not being considered at all for him.
Chelsea will want to make £35 million on him and will want to sell him as quickly as possible as his contract runs out in 2024 and they would not want to lose him on a free.
Arsenal and Manchester United have been said to be interested in him and would be keen on taking the player on in the future to improve their own sides.
