AC Milan have come back to Chelsea with an improved offer for USMNT forward Christian Pulisic worth up to $24m including add-ons.
Lyon had offered $27.3m earlier this week for Pulisic which was expected to be accepted by the Blues but the 24-year-old Hershey native quickly turned down the move in an attempt to push through a move to the Serie A giants.
Christian Pulisic finally set for San Siro switch?
According to Italian football expert James Horncastle, Chelsea and Milan have forged a good relationship over the previous four years; working together on transfers that have seen Olivier Giroud, Fikayo Tomori, Tiemoue Bakayoko, and more recently Ruben Loftus-Cheek, all swap Stamford Bridge for the San Siro.
Despite Pulisic reigning from Pennsylvania, the attacker also holds a Croatian passport due to his grandfather, and so would not need to fill one of Milan’s two non-EU registration slots for the upcoming season.
Time will tell if Chelsea decides to accept Milan’s second bid but there is a feeling that Pulisic will get his wishes and will be a Rossoneri player in time for next season.
