The USMNT winger is injured yet again and while reports of a January move to Serie A have been shot down, it does not mean it isn’t a good idea for Christian Pulisic in the summer.

Christian Pulisic is back in the starting lineup, but the Chelsea and USMNT winger has once again had a season derailed by a knee injury. The injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for Pulisic, who has finally had a string of starts and who has shown promising performances during that time.

Overall, Pulisic’s season has been a total disaster, much like Chelsea’s, injury aside, the World Cup goalscorer has 1 goal and 2 assists in 21 games. AC Milan were eyeing the American over the winter for a potential move, according to Marco, who have since reportedly been shot down.

Pulisic isn’t going anywhere, but with little room for consistent game time at Chelsea right now, a move to a club like AC Milan could be just what the American needs to finally fulfill his potential.

Why a move to AC Milan makes sense for Christian Pulisic

It was a given that Chelsea was not going to sell Pulisic in the winter transfer window, despite struggling for minutes the American is held to high regard when it comes to his work rate and ability to come in at various points during a match.

That being said, Chelsea has gone on a spending spree making moves which make sense to few. Pulisic’s place on the first team continues to be impacted and his chances of starting over many on the roster continues to dwindle. Overall, the project at Chelsea is very much in the air, the club seems to be a mess of overspending, accounting for 34 first team players.

Graham Potter’s position at the club is on thin ice, if Potter were to be sacked, he’d be the second manager in less than a year to be fired by the new ownership, asking the question, for who and why is the club buying all these players almost uncontrollably?

Enter AC Milan, who have a much clearer project thanks to the hard work of Stefano Pioli and Paolo Maldini. AC Milan are the current Serie A champions and sit second in the table behind Napoli.
