Despite Yunus Musah being atop Milan’s priority list, Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is close to moving as well, as he approaches the final year on his Blues contract. 24-year-old Pulisic has experienced a tumultuous couple of past seasons at Stamford Bridge, falling out of favor under Graham Potter, after the sacking of Thomas Tuchel.
Keeping in mind the importance of boosting their forward line, Milan have shown interest in signing the USMNT star. Pulisic’s potential transfer to the Rossoneri hangs in the balance as negotiations continue, with La Gazzetta dello Sport reporting that at least €20-25M will be required to lure Pulisic to San Siro.

Milan are ready with €15M at hand for Pulisic, given they also plan to onboard AZ Alkmaar midfielder Tijjani Reijnders simultaneously around the same price tag. The Dutchman reportedly impressed chief scout Geoffrey Moncada with his skills in the Eredivisie last season.
It is suggested that Pulisic may need to accept a pay cut to facilitate the move to Serie A, with Juventus also reportedly interested in his services. Similar to the Bianconeri, Milan seek to strengthen their attacking options in a bid to compete across all fronts next season.
However, the details surrounding the potential transfer are yet to be finalized. Milan are required to weigh the financial aspects of the deal, considering both the transfer fee and Pulisic’s salary demands. Meanwhile, Pulisic himself is confident that a move to the Italian giants is the right step in his career.
