Journalist Ben Jacobs has claimed that Christian Pulisic has been in conversation with Weston McKennie about potentially joining Juventus this summer.

The pair are two of the biggest stars of the United States national team, with them set to start for their country at this winter’s World Cup.

In order to be at his best, Pulisic will need to gain more gametime than he is likely to receive in the next few months at Stamford Bridge.

With the signing of Raheem Sterling bolstering their attacking options, opportunities look bleak for some of the fringe members of the squad to feature this campaign.

This situation has already seen the end of Timo Werner’s tenure at the club, with him securing his permanent move back to the Bundesliga and RB Leipzig.

It could now spell the end for Pulisic too, with Jacobs claiming a move to Serie A is a likely scenario.

He said: “But as reported back in June, I am still told Pulisic is tempted by Serie A should the option present itself. Juventus have expressed some interest but it remains to be seen whether they advance it.

“Pulisic has spoken to Weston McKennie and would be prepared to move.”

It has been reported today that Manchester United are keen to sign the American on loan, with their personal start to the season leaving a lot to be desired.

While it is unclear whether he would be trusted with more minutes at Old Trafford than he would be at Chelsea, a move remaining in England is probably not in his best interest, given how important this next few months are.

With him needing to get back to his best before the World Cup, playing somewhere he is guaranteed starts is far more important, with that far more likely at Juventus.
