Due to Christian Pulisic’s flexibility on the tactical field, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is eager to sign the Chelsea star in January.
According to reports, Christian Pulisic, a Chelsea reject, will face competition from Arsenal, Manchester United, and Newcastle.
Although Pulisic cost £58 million to transfer from Borussia Dortmund to Stamford Bridge, neither Frank Lampard, Thomas Tuchel, nor Graham Potter has expressed interest in the winger, and he has struggled to make an impact in the Blues’ starting lineup.
The 24-year-old has occasionally displayed class over the past few seasons, contributing to 47 goals in 133 games, but it is believed that he has grown dissatisfied with both his position and Chelsea.
Following this term’s exclusion by Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter, the American wants to leave Stamford Bridge.
Since his £58 million transfer from Dortmund, the winger has spent four years in west London, but his time with the Blues has been disappointing due to injuries and managerial instability.
It is undeniable that Pulisic is a talented player, as evidenced by the fact that he was named Man of the Match on Friday in a 0-0 draw with England.
Last summer, United attempted to acquire Pulisic, but ultimately decided to pursue the £85 million transfer of Ajax star Antony.
However, Anthony Martial is the only center-forward available to Ten Hag as a result of Cristiano Ronaldo’s contentious exit, leaving the team lacking in attack.
Even though Pulisic is more of a traditional winger, he is capable of playing in both a central and flanking role.
According to ESPN, Pulisic’s tactical adaptability is what drew Ten Hag to the Chelsea star’s availability, and United is getting ready to make a loan move for him in January.
As a long-term striker is anticipated to be the club’s priority next summer, United is searching for a temporary fix to their offensive problems.
Although it is unknown if Chelsea would approve of Pulisic joining a direct rival, United would pay Pulisic’s entire salary, which is estimated to be around £ 130,000 a week.
