USMNT star Christian Pulisic has completed a £17 million ($22m) transfer to AC Milan from Chelsea.
- Pulisic joins Milan
- Four-year contract signed
- Chelsea cut ties with USMNT star after four years
WHAT HAPPENED? Pulisic underwent a successful medical at his new club on Wednesday before putting pen to paper on a four-year contract that will see him remain at San Siro until 2027 but includes an option to extend for another season. The U.S. men’s national team forward has followed Ruben Loftus-Cheek to Milan, who signed the English midfielder from Chelsea for £15m ($19m) at the start of the month, while also reuniting with former Blues team-mates Olivier Giroud and Fikayo Tomori.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Chelsea initially signed Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund for £58m ($75m) in 2019, and he went on to appear in 146 games across all competitions for the west London outfit, scoring 26 goals. However, he struggled for form and fitness with Chelsea, and spent the majority of the 2022-23 campaign on the bench as the Blues slumped to their worst-ever Premier League finish.
