Christian Pulisic publicly opens up about his Chelsea future

Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has opened up and spoken publicly about his Chelsea future this week.

The USA international has never really managed to get any solid consistency up at Chelsea due to injuries and poor form, and therefore you cannot call his time at the club a success. He’s had a question mark over his future for some time now, but it genuinely looks like this summer will be the time that he moves on from the Stamford Bridge club.

EXCL: Caicedo clause makes move possible, Inside Ugarte saga, Pricing United out of Mount move, Havertz departure not yet imminent, Plus more!

Pulisic has been very coy on his future, and he is once again refusing to rule out a move away this summer.

In some words reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer, Pulisic said: “It’s obviously been an interesting journey at club level for me. I thought it was a great couple of years, and the last couple years just haven’t gone at all how I’ve planned them to be. … This summer, we’re obviously going to have to see what happens — it’s obviously very early. As of right now, I’m a Chelsea player and I plan to go back, but a lot of things can happen, a lot of things can change.

“It’s really in the back of my head — I’m not even thinking about, right now, where do I want to be next season. Right now, I’m focused on the national team. I want to be here, I want to win games, that’s my sole focus right now. … I need to also rest after this, get away from the game a bit, and enjoy my break, see my family, all those kinds of good things. And then once it’s time to make decisions and see what options I have, then I’ll deal with it then.”

Pulisic has obviously joined up once again with his USA national team mates, but as he says above, will soon be getting his break and holiday ahead of a new season.

Personally, I expect him to leave Chelsea this summer and that would absolutely be the right move for all parties.

  1. Yes, he was hit by injury. Yes, he struggled at times to find his best form. But he also got less than he deserved from his managers. The lack of trust/confidence placed in Pulisic stands in stark contrast to the “love” shown a player who arrived around the same time in Mason Mount. Even as the latter labored through a miserable 2023, he still somehow played way more games than Pulisic. Go figure!

    At only 24, Pulisic still has a bright future ahead of him and, thanks to poor squad management and lack of playing time at Chelsea, he’s going to be available for a song. The player we saw dazzle during Project Restart merely needs a manger willing to place faith in him and grant him consistent minutes to unlock his star potential.
