Pulisic to AC Milan
As reported by Fabrizio Romano and many journalists, Pulisic is set to join AC Milan over a fee of around £20m, which many include some undisclosed bonuses. Personal terms were never a problem as the USMNT captain wanted the move from Stamford bridge to San Siro weeks ago.
The move was made possible because of the good relationship betwen the clubs which grew over the last few years. With Ruben Loftus-Cheek making the move in June, Pulisic is set for a reunion with the midfielder. Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud is also one of the other AC Milan players who used to play with Pulisic at Chelsea.
Pulisic joined Chelsea from German giants, Dortmund for a fee of £58m, four years ago in 2019. Since then he has managed to have 145 appearances for the Blues in all competition, bagging 26 goals and 21 assists.
He hasn’t really been able to perform for Chelsea due to various reasons, the major one being injuries. He rarely saw an extended run of starts during his time in London. Although he was crucial in Chelsea’s Champions League win in 2021 yet his time at Chelsea couldn’t be termed as successful.
Milan are in the process of scheduling his medicals at San Siro as soon as he returns from his holiday after helping his national side in winning the Nations League. He would like to bring back his Dortmund form to Milan and because he’s still 24 years of age, he could still develop as a player.
Milan would like to use the winger in the number 10 position, just behind the striker or he could also be played as a substitute to Rafael Leao. It would interesting to see how he performs for Milan and how quickly he can adapt to the playing style in the Italian League.
