Chelsea are said to be aiming to make £25 million from the sale of Christian Pulisic this summer.
The Blues’ hierarchy is currently focused on recouping as much money as possible before filing their accounts for the 2022-23 season on June 30.
Chelsea must make sales after spending £600 million in the previous two transfer windows, with Mateo Kovacic the most recent to leave for a move to Manchester City.
According to rumours, Edouard Mendy, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Hakim Ziyech, and Kai Havertz will also depart in the coming days.
However, Pulisic’s future remains uncertain, as the winger has not gotten the same kind of interest as some of his teammates.
However, there is an understanding that the United States international’s time at Chelsea is coming to an end, with neither party wanting to extend his contract beyond 2024.
Pulisic has already stated openly that he wants to sign with a new team in the coming weeks after being nothing more than a squad member under a number of different head coaches.
Nonetheless, the Evening Standard reports that Chelsea are now holding firm at a price tag of £25 million, a number that rivals are currently unwilling to pay.
Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital have typically maintained their positions, as evidenced by Mason Mount’s rumoured desire to join Manchester United.
Mount, like Pulisic, has a 12-month contract, and Chelsea cannot afford to risk both players departing on free agents this time next year.
AC Milan and Juventus are thought to be interested in signing Pulisic, with the Italian clubs expected to try to reach an agreement on a fee at some point.
The former are on the verge of signing Loftus-Cheek and will soon have money to spend if Sandro Tonali’s transfer to Newcastle United is finalised.
Pulisic has also been linked with Manchester United and Newcastle United, though he is said to have turned down a move to a Saudi Pro League club.
