'Waiting': £150k-a-week Chelsea player's advisor now wants talks with both Boehly and Tuchel - journalist
Christian Pulisic’s representatives reportedly want to sit down for talks with senior Chelsea figures Todd Boehly and Thomas Tuchel.
According to well-respected journalist Fabrizio Romano, Pulisic’s advisors hope for some discussions to clarify their client’s situation at Stamford Bridge.
It is understood the 23-year-old’s people want to speak with Blues co-owner Todd Boehly, who’s stepped in as interim sporting director. They want conversations with Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, too.
It’s clear the American winger would like some assurances about his role in Tuchel’s squad because he’s not always a guaranteed starter. Incidentally, there’s a lot of pressure on the attacker to start next season well because he’ll captain his country the United States in the winter World Cup.
“Pulisic, on the other hand, is waiting to speak to Chelsea officials. At Pulisic, his advisor would like to speak to Todd Boehly and Thomas Tuchel to find out where his client stands. There have been transfer rumors regarding Liverpool and Juventus but what I’ve been told isn’t serious or obvious. Pulisic wants to have his situation at the club clarified before he leaves the club,” Romano explained.
Pulisic talks with Chelsea
Pulisic, who still has two years remaining on his contract at Chelsea, is actually linked with a potential exit this summer.
It’s been reported he’s one of the first-team players that would be open to moving if the right offer arrived. In addition, it’s been claimed Juventus and AC Milan have set their sights on him amid his frustration over his game time.
He finished last season with eight goals and five assists in 38 appearances across all competitions, which puts him in the category with most Chelsea attackers to slightly underachieve.
Pulisic’s way past the settling in period after three seasons now at the Bridge. Unfortunately, he’s not kicked on and become the talisman most expected despite purple patches of brilliance.
An honest and open conversation with Tuchel seems the smart move.
