Inter Milan and Juventus ‘are battling to sign USMNT star Christian Pulisic’

Inter Milan and Juventus ‘are battling to sign USMNT star Christian Pulisic’… and the Chelsea star could even leave after the World Cup in JANUARY after struggling for Premier League minutes

Serie A giants Inter Milan and Juventus are both interested in signing United States superstar Christian Pulisic after the World Cup, according to reports.

The 24-year-old is the USMNT’s biggest name in Qatar, but at club level, he has struggled for minutes at Chelsea and could be open to an exit sooner rather than later.

Spanish newspaper Fichajes reports that the American could well be heading for Italy in the coming weeks, with both Inter Milan and Juventus vying for his signature.

Pulisic has previously played in America, Germany and England, but a move to Italy would represent a fresh start for a player lacking in game-time.

At Chelsea in the Premier League this season, he has started just three matches, having to put up with appearances off the bench in a further 10 games.

He joined the Blues in 2019 from Borussia Dortmund, and currently earns over $9million a year – far and away the highest salary for a US soccer player.

‘Captain America’ will be pivotal to the USA’s hopes at the World Cup in Qatar this month, and he played the full 90 minutes in the opening draw with Wales. 

Tim Weah – son of soccer legend-turned-politician George – scored the opening goal, before Los Angeles FC star Gareth Bale levelled the game with a late penalty.

It is England up next for the States, with a huge clash on Friday expected to play a large part in deciding who goes through to the knockout stages of the tournament.
