Although rumored to be on his way out of Chelsea, USMNT international Christian Pulisic could be handed a last-minute chance to save his Stamford Bridge career.
That’s according to recent reports, which claim incoming permanent manager Mauricio Pochettino is willing to give the American attacker one last chance to impress in London.
Christian Pulisic transfer news: American could stay at Chelsea
It has recently been suggested that Pulisic is one of seven players set to be sold by Todd Boehly, but ahead of Pochettino’s impending arrival, the 24-year-old attacker, along with outcasted striker Romelu Lukaku, could be in line to feature for the Argentine tactician.
Although Pochettino has yet to be officially unveiled as Chelsea’s new permanent boss, with ongoing talks believed to be at their closing stages, it seems only a matter of time before the ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager is announced as Graham Potter’s long-term successor.
And ahead of the South American tactician’s arrival, when it comes to Pulisic’s precarious standing within Chelsea’s bursting roster, in order to finally nail a regular spot down in the Londoners’ starting lineup, the American must beat strong competition in the form of Ukrainian winger Mykhailo Mudryk and England international Raheem Sterling, who were both signed in the last two transfer windows for a combined $172m.
Although Pulisic is now approaching the mid-way stage in his professional career, there is still plenty of time for him to turn it around, and given how impressive he was during his four years with Borussia Dortmund, recapturing his best form is something the Pennsylvania-born star is capable of doing.
Since joining the Blues from Borussia Dortmund all the way back in 2019, Pulisic, who has just 12 months left on his contract and was signed for around $80m, has scored 26 goals in 142 games in all competitions.
