It has been stated that Newcastle United is prepared to spend 45 million euros in order to get Christian Pulisic, a great player for the United States national team, during the next transfer window in January. According to a report by the Spanish news site TodomercadoWeb, the 24-year-old player is very dissatisfied with the fact that he has not been given a significant amount of playing time and hopes to push through a move once the transfer market reopens after the World Cup.
Since making the transfer to Chelsea in the summer of 2019, the winger who formerly played for Borussia Dortmund has had a difficult time adjusting to life at Stamford Bridge. His time with the Blues has been marred by injuries, and he has, for the most part, been relegated to a supporting position at Stamford Bridge under the direction of a variety of managers. The 24-year-old forward has scored 26 goals for the Blues in 126 games, but he really needs to see more playing time at this juncture in his career.
The American has played a total of 284 minutes of football for Chelsea this season, registering one goal and one assist in 11 appearances across all competitions. The majority of his appearances have been off-the-bench cameos, but there is some optimism that newly-appointed Blues manager Graham Potter will give him more playing time.
Under the management of the person who formerly managed Brighton and Hove Albion, Pulisic has made a total of four appearances, however, he has only started one of those games. There was some concern that the 24-year-old player would not be in enough physical condition to compete in the World Cup Finals with the United States the following month.
Even once the World Cup is over, the situation will not have improved. Since Christopher Nkunku has already agreed to a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea, it is possible that the United States national team attacker will feel even further down the pecking order at Chelsea. This is due to the fact that Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is planning to once again spend a lot of money in the upcoming transfer windows on flashy new toys.
During the summer of 2022, a number of teams, including Chelsea, expressed interest in acquiring the young talent from Chelsea, but a deal was never reached. According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who has revealed why the attacker did not end up at St. James Park, many teams, including Newcastle United, were claimed to be “crazy” about getting his services.
Speaking to the Que Golazo podcast last month, quotes relayed by Football365, Romano said: “Newcastle were obsessed with Christian [Pulisic]. They wanted him on loan, but not on a permanent deal.
“They wanted him on loan, maybe with a buy option, not mandatory. And this is why Chelsea decided to say no.”
The clubs’ rich Saudi-backed owners are likely to further support manager Eddie Howe in the winter market in order to bolster their fight for European berths following their excellent start to the season. This position seems to have altered, however, as it is predicted that the move will take place.
The Magpies are doing quite well at the moment, sitting in sixth place in the Premier League standings. However, some of its important players, like Allan Saint-Maximin and Alexander Isak, have been sidelined with injuries this season. The addition of extra quality depth in attacking areas will be provided by the signing of a player of Pulisic’s calibre, adaptability, and directness, which has the potential to be a game-changer for their European goals for this season.
However, Newcastle is not the only team that has shown interest in a potential transaction involving Pulisic. There have been rumours circulating that the 24-year-old is dissatisfied at Chelsea and is eager to leave the club in January. Borussia Dortmund and Juventus are two of the most prominent teams in Europe, and they have been placed on high alert as a result of these rumours.
