Pulisic Not Getting Enough Minutes With Chelsea — Could Seek A Summer Transfer To Juventus

Imagine if McKennie and Pulisic got to play together in Turin.

Christian Pulisic needs to get out of Chelsea. Simple as that. 

The American star made an appearance as a substitute during Chelsea’s Sunday defeat to Everton. This was his ninth appearance off the bench in the Premier League this season and the fifth in a row. Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel doesn’t seem to trust starting Pulisic, even if he comes off the bench and scores a game-winner.

The lack of playing time has helped spark Pulisic Juventus transfer rumors.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport claimed that Juventus is eyeing up Pulisic as a potential replacement for Paulo Dybala in the summer. The Argentine’s contract runs out at the end of this season.

Pulisic’s father, Mark, added some gasoline to the fiery rumors with a since deleted tweet that expressed frustration with his son’s lack of play and hinted at something big in the coming months.

If the Pulisic Juventus rumors turn out to be true and Captain America heads to Italy, he could team up with U.S. compatriot Weston McKennie. USMNT fans wouldn’t be opposed at all to the idea of America’s two best players building chemistry ahead of the World Cup.

One big “what if” that could hinder the Pulisic-McKennie partnership at Juventus is Tottenham. Spurs manager Antonio Conte has expressed interest in signing McKennie in the summer. It could be a funny situation where Pulisic and McKennie end up switching leagues.
