Pulisic’s Chelsea future will be decided after June

Townsend believe Pulisic could leave

Christian Pulisic’s future and Chelsea has come under increasing focus over recent weeks after a failure to earn regular minutes in the first team.

Thomas Tuchel trusted the American international to start in their match away at Leeds on Saturday afternoon, however the winger was unable to take his opportunity and the game ended 0-0.

Commentator Andy Townsend believes that he could be one which moves on in the summer because of a lack of opportunities.

“I think both of these guys, with the Tuchel set-up, have to get going pretty quickly, I really do,” said former Chelsea midfielder Townsend.

“I’m not sure they’re going to do that. ‘I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of them leave this summer. I wouldn’t be surprised at all.

“I don’t think Pulisic wants to sit on the bench and I think Ziyech will get bogged down a bit. His body language hasn’t been great.”

Chelsea invested hugely in the summer with Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech all coming in. This, in addition to Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi already being at the club, has left a battle for minutes rife at the club.

No word on Pulisic future till June

With the speculation over the American international’s future growing, transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano has spoken out to confirm that no decision will be made on Pulisic’s future until after the end of the season.

“Christian Pulisic has always been respectful with Chelsea – great professional. There’s interest from top clubs in case he’ll leave, normal for this kind of talent. But Pulisic is still fighting for Chelsea… and nothing will be decided before June,” wrote Romano.

With interest from many top clubs, it is unlikely Pulisic will be taking a step down should he move on.
