Report: Christian Pulisic Agrees to AC Milan Contract Ahead of Potential Transfer


According to ESPN’s Jeff Carlisle, Christian Pulisic, the captain of the U.S. men’s national team, has agreed “in principle” to leave Chelsea in order to sign a long-term contract with AC Milan in the Serie A league of Italy.



Although the parties are still working out a transfer price, Carlisle stated that Pulisic is “willing to take a substantial pay cut” in order to finalize the move.



There are still 12 months left on Pulisic’s Chelsea deal. When he joined the team in January 2019 for $73.1 million (£58 million), he became the highest-paid American soccer player ever in terms of transfer fees.



Chelsea is looking to clear out some salary. The club has spent about $742 million (£585m) on new players since its purchase by American businessman Todd Boehly and his consortium last year, ESPN’s Mark Ogden reported.


Italian sports news site Tuttomercatoweb first reported the news of Pulisic’s deal, per Carlisle.

Pulisic has also been connected with potential trades to Serie A’s Juventus and Napoli, the Premier League’s Manchester United and Newcastle United, and La Liga’s Atletico Madrid, per ESPN.



The USMNT winger made 98 Premier League appearances in four seasons with Chelsea, during which he recorded nine assists and scored 20 goals.



Chelsea wants to receive a $27.3 million (€25 million) transfer fee for Pulisic, while Milan would prefer a price of around $16 million to $20 million (€15m-€18m), per Carlisle.



The two clubs recently completed a deal for midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who went from Chelsea to Milan on a four-year deal for a transfer fee of around $19 million (£15m) “plus add-ons,” according to The Athletic.



Milan is looking to bolster its roster after the news that star midfielder Sandro Tonali will depart for Newcastle broke earlier this week. The club is also reportedly interested in acquiring USMNT midfielder Yunus Musah, who currently plays for Valencia in Spain’s La Liga, per The Athletic’s James Horncastle.



Musah and Pulisic could potentially join USMNT teammate Timothy Weah in Serie A. Winger Timothy Weah recently signed a five-year deal with Juventus.
