Report: Potter tells Boehly to delay any talks to sell Chelsea 24-year-old

Report: Potter asks Boehly to delay any talks to sell 24-year-old Chelsea player, he's got plan of where to play him

Graham Potter reportedly has a plan for Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic to play him on the right side of attack.

Pulisic, 24, is a Blues attacker whose future at Stamford Bridge seems uncertain.

Gazetta dello Sport claim that Pulisic would be open to joining interested buyers AC Milan. In addition, Calciomercato report that Juventus have held talks with the 24-year-old’s agent about a potential move.

Despite widespread speculation about the winger’s future, a new report suggests there may still be a chance for him to thrive at Chelsea.

Potter has plan for Pulisic

Potter, who became Chelsea’s new head coach earlier this month, arrives at Stamford Bridge with a clean slate.

According to 90min, Potter wants to give Pulisic the opportunity to prove himself before his future is decided.

It is understood that he’s even instructed Todd Boehly, the club’s co-owner and interim sporting director, to delay any talks about selling him.

The report adds Potter is planning to use the United States international on the right wing in an offensive role.

Pulisic has looked a little lost in recent months within the Chelsea line-up, but some clear fresh instructions from the new manager could be ideal.

He’s a quick forward that possesses the versatility to play anywhere across the frontline. Thomas Tuchel even tried him out at wing-back, too.

The best version of Pulisic is when you get him troubling defenders with his movement around the box, as well as his express pace and great dribbling. He needs the confidence restored in his game to get back to his best, though.
