- Pulisic expected to leave this summer
- USMNT star 'likes Milan'
- Chelsea clearout continues
WHAT HAPPENED? Relevo's Matteo Moretto reports that the American is one of the players favoured by the new sporting directorship at AC Milan, with the player open to the idea of moving to Serie A. Pulisic has one year left on the contract he signed with the London club 2019.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Pulisic's impending departure is the latest instalment of what promises to be an epic summer clear-out in west London. Despite having spent hundreds of millions in two transfer window splurges, the Blues were left without European football after a disastrous season. They now have to balance the books while also accommodating incoming manager Mauricio Pochettino's personnel preferences.
AND WHAT'S MORE: Pulisic's time at Chelsea has been a torrid one, failing to impress successive managers while also dealing with a succession of injuries.
