Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic ‘offered to Manchester United, Newcastle United’

The representatives of Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic reportedly offer the USA international to Manchester United and Newcastle United.

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has reportedly been offered to both Manchester United and Newcastle United.

The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer, with Chelsea keen to trim their squad following a number of new arrivals over the past two transfer windows.

New boss Mauricio Pochettino is understood to deem Pulisic as one of the players who is surplus to requirements, particularly as his contract is due to expire next summer.

ESPN claims that Pulisic’s representatives have approached Chelsea’s Premier League rivals Manchester United and Newcastle United to gauge their interest in a move for the attacker.

Both clubs are looking to bolster their attacking ranks this summer ahead of returns to the Champions League next season, having finished third and fourth respectively in the Premier League table last term.

However, both Man United and Newcastle are thought to value other targets as higher priorities than Pulisic, while Chelsea would prefer to sell him to an overseas club rather than risk strengthening a domestic rival.

Serie A giants Napoli, AC Milan and Juventus have all been credited with an interest in the USA international, while Turkish champions Galatasaray are also rumoured to be keeping tabs on his situation.

Pulisic joined Chelsea in a £58m deal from Borussia Dortmund in 2019, going on to score 26 goals in 145 games for the club across all competitions.

During that time, the winger has helped the Blues to Champions League glory, in addition to winning the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.

However, a mixture of form and fitness has interrupted Pulisic’s time at Stamford Bridge and hampered his ability to enjoy an extended run of regular first-team football from the start of matches.

The American featured for just 33 minutes in the final seven games of 2022-23 under Frank Lampard, and made only eight Premier League starts all season.

Pulisic helped USA to CONCACAF Nations League glory on Sunday, and was named the player of the tournament for his performances throughout the campaign.
