Pulisic Not Getting Enough Minutes With Chelsea — Could Seek A Summer Transfer To Juventus
Get the best email in soccer.
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.
Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Christian Pulisic this summer as a Paulo Dybala replacement.But would Chelsea be willing to cash in on their American star?

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.
Tottenham coach Antonio Conte is still very high on Weston McKennie -- he's requested that Spurs make a move to land the 23-year-old USMNT midfielder in the summer transfer window. pic.twitter.com/eZirpe4thj— USMNT Only (@usmntonly) May 4, 2022
