Chelsea is in the final stretch on an agreement with Serie A giants for €64 million forward.
Chelsea and AC Milan are set for another direct meeting to find an agreement for Christian Pulisic, with the USMNT star keen to join the Serie A giants.
According to Fabrizio Romano, AC Milan, and Chelsea will have a final direct meeting to find an agreement for Christian Pulisic. The 24-year-old American remains keen to join the Rossoneri in this window, but the Serie A giants are yet to convince the Blues with a suitable offer.
AC Milan have ramped up their efforts to sign Christian Pulisic off Chelsea, who signed him for €64 million. There have been talks in the background for the USMNT star, but none have resulted in an agreement. The 24-year-old does not have a future at the club, with the Blues keen to cash in as he entered the final year of his deal.
Injuries and inconsistent displays have cost Pulisic his development. His promising start to life in Europe with Borussia Dortmund earned him a big move to Chelsea, but he has so far disappointed. The Blues are eager to place him for sale and generate much-needed funds.
Lyon were among teams who tabled a bid for the €64 million forward but could not find an agreement. Chelsea are open to selling Pulisic for the offer the French giants proposed, but his mind remains elsewhere. The 24-year-old asked the Blues for a new challenge and preferred a move to Milan.
Yet, the Rossoneri’s initial offer fell well short of Chelsea’s asking price. They were preparing an improved bid for the American but would like to discuss it at length before making it official. The Premier League giants may remain adamant over their reported €25 million asking price but could accept a slightly lower fee too.
The two clubs are set to hold direct conversations to reach an agreement. Milan feel optimistic about signing the American but will have to raise their offer to find a breakthrough. Chelsea will want a deal wrapped up quickly as they want to focus on their incomings.
If he leaves, the American will join a host of other stars out of the door. Chelsea have conducted massive sales in the early part of this window. Many notable stars like Kai Havertz, Mateo Kovacic and Mason Mount, among many others.
They hope to generate enough cash to fund their transfers for essential players like Moises Caicedo and a new striker. There is plenty of optimism to get the Pulisic deal over the line as the two teams can find an agreement in the coming days.
