Chelsea receive £19 million bid for incredible player from Champions League side – The Chelsea Chronicle – Chelsea FC News

Chelsea have now received a second bid from AC Milan for Christian Pulisic as the Italian giants step up their pursuit of the American.

That reports The Athletic.

What is the latest news about Christian Pulisic at Chelsea? Let’s see…

What’s the story?

Well, the US international was the subject of a €14m (£12m) bid from AC Milan earlier this week.

Chelsea – rightly so – thought that was too low for Pulisic, who called Jose Enrique an “incredible” player on Instagram.

But now AC Milan have increased their bid to €22m (£18.9m) as the Champions League side look to secure the signature of Chelsea’s number 10.

Chelsea hopes to receive an amount of around 25 million euros for Pulisic, which Lyon offered for the attacker a few days ago.

Pulisic, however, is not too keen on a move to France and hopes that Chelsea will find an agreement with AC Milan. The Athletic adds that he already has an agreement with the Serie A squad.

So it is now up to the San Siro players to strike a deal with the Blues that will allow the 24-year-old to travel to Milan for a medical, where he will work alongside Ruben Loftus-Cheek. , Olivier Giroud and Fikayo Tomori.

Pulisic has only 12 months left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and according to the Evening Standard, he is very frustrated in West London after a disappointing 2022-23 season in which he started just eight times in the Premier League.

Chelsea accept huge loss to Pulisic

It is safe to say that the signing of Pulisic was a very bad thing for Chelsea.

Eyebrows were raised in the first place when the Blues spent £58 million on the man nicknamed Captain America after he scored just 19 goals in 127 appearances for Borussia Dortmund.

Now – after 26 goals in 145 appearances for Chelsea – it seems the players at Stamford Bridge are prepared to accept a £37m loss on the American, which is a serious financial blow.

Nevertheless, it’s important to get Pulisic’s £150,000-a-week wages off the payroll this summer, given his status as a fringe player, so hopefully AC Milan and Chelsea can find an agreement soon.
