Juventus, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid ‘to battle Manchester United for Christian Pulisic’

Juventus, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid are reportedly keen to sign Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic on loan for the 2022-23 campaign.

The 23-year-old’s future is currently being called into question, with the Blues said to be prepared to let him leave on a short-term basis before the end of the transfer window.

Manchester United are allegedly exploring the possibility of signing the United States international on loan for the 2022-23 season.

However, according to the Daily Mail, there is also interest from Juventus, Milan and Atletico, with the European trio showing a desire to sign the attacker this summer.

The report claims that Newcastle United are also in the running, but the Magpies could struggle to attract him due to the other offers said to be on the table.

Pulisic is said to be keen to leave Chelsea this summer to ensure that he receives regular football ahead of representing the United States at the 2022 World Cup.

The attacker has been involved in both of his side’s Premier League matches this season, featuring for the final 25 minutes of the 1-0 win over Everton on August 6 before appearing for the last six minutes against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

Chelsea have allowed both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, but Pulisic is expected to struggle for regular starts if he remains at Stamford Bridge this summer.

The American moved to the Blues from Borussia Dortmund in January 2019 and has represented the London club on 117 occasions in all competitions, contributing 25 goals and 19 assists in the process.

Pulisic started his professional career with Dortmund, boasting a record of 19 goals and 26 assists in 127 appearances for the German giants.

Chelsea have boosted their attack with the arrival of Raheem Sterling this summer, but the Blues are expected to sign at least one more forward before the market closes.

There could be a huge turnaround at the club in the latter stages of the window, with Hakim Ziyech also potentially being allowed to leave amid interest from Man United.

Thomas Tuchel‘s side have picked up four points from their opening two matches of the 2022-23 Premier League campaign against Everton and Tottenham, and they will be bidding to continue their unbeaten start in Sunday’s trip to Leeds United.
