Christian Pulisic Set for Career Revival at Milan Following Stint at Chelsea

The American winger is expected to join Milan for a fee of around £18.7m. The clubs are currently in ongoing talks to finalize the structure of the deal, and they are edging closer to its completion.

During his four-year spell at Chelsea, Pulisic struggled to establish himself as a regular starter. Despite his efforts, he made only eight Premier League starts in the previous season. With players like Raheem Sterling, Mykhaylo Mudryk, and Noni Madueke often preferred on the flanks, Pulisic faced limited game-time.

He will be aiming to revive his career at Milan, where he hopes to secure a regular first-team role. Former Chelsea teammates Olivier Giroud, Fikayo Tomori, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will provide familiar faces in the dressing room, offering support as he settles into the new environment. Pulisic will be seeking more playing time and a fresh start to rediscover the promise he demonstrated during his time at Borussia Dortmund.

Landon Donovan’s Perspective

Legendary USMNT striker Landon Donovan has expressed his opinion on Pulisic’s move to AC Milan. Donovan believes that the forward would have been better off joining Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States. Consequently, he suggests that staying in the US would have provided Pulisic with guaranteed playing time and a significant paycheck. Considering the upcoming World Cup in three years.

Donovan highlights the importance of the World Cup and believes that Pulisic could have played a crucial role as an American superstar in MLS. He suggests that joining an MLS club, like the Galaxy, would have allowed Pulisic to showcase his talents on a regular basis and maintain good form leading up to the World Cup.
