Pulisic was instrumental in the United States’ progression into the last 16 at the World Cup.
According to journalist Simon Phillips, Chelsea star Christian Pulisic is ‘open to leaving’ Stamford Bridge, but the club want to hold discussions about his contract after his return from the World Cup.
The winger is currently playing in Qatar, having been included in the United States’ squad for the showpiece tournament.
There is growing uncertainty over Pulisic’s long-term future as he will enter the final 18 months of his Chelsea contract at the turn of the year.
Newcastle and Manchester United are following the situation of the 24-year-old, after initially making enquiries in August, as per the Daily Mail. Arsenal are also making interest in Chelsea player.
Spanish sources have added that Pulisic also has admirers in Italy as Inter Milan and Juventus are further clubs mulling over whether to head to the negotiating table.
Chelsea are unwilling to entertain loan proposals, as reported by MailOnline, but the American is still expected to make a permanent move away from Stamford Bridge when the transfer window reopens in January.
Pulisic was instrumental in the United States’ progression into the last 16 at the World Cup. He was taken to hospital after sustaining a pelvic injury while scoring the winner against Iran on Tuesday, according to The Guardian.
Phillips told GIVEMESPORT: “I think he’s open to leaving. He’s definitely made that clear.
“But, right now, he’s focusing on the World Cup. When he gets back, Chelsea are going to have a conversation with him about the 2024 contract because that’s when it runs out.”
However, the American has struggled to produce his best form since the campaign got underway, scoring three goals in 18 appearances.
