Report: Chelsea prepared to listen to offers for their ‘huge talent’, will demand nearly £60m
Chelsea would reportedly prefer to sell Christian Pulisic rather than loan him out this summer.
According to The Sun, Manchester United are interested in signing the 23-year-old Blues attacker on loan
is understood that Chelsea would rather offload the American on a permanent basis, though.
The report says they’ll listen to offers for Pulisic during the next couple of weeks, but want to recuperate the full £58million they paid for him a few years ago.
With Chelsea demanding nearly £60million for the forward, will any club step forward with a bid?
Chelsea prefer to sell Pulisic
It makes little sense doing Man United a favour by sending them Pulisic on loan, so you can fully understand why a permanent transfer would make much more sense.
Described as a “huge talent” earlier this year by Gary Neville, Pulisic is a player that frustrates supporters at Stamford Bridge.
The winger can produce moments of brilliance in the final third, but there’s no major consistency in his game.
He finished last season with eight goals and five assists in 38 matches across all competitions, which wasn’t a bad return considering he missed a couple of months with an ankle problem
However, the United States international can’t seem to become a real favourite under Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.
His 2019/20 campaign is proof of what a talented player he can be.
The forward had 21 direct goal contributions in 34 Blues appearances, but it was a familiar case of injuries interrupting him whenever he builds up some momentum.
It would be quite a surprise if a clubs willing to fork out a near-£60million sum for him.
