Barcelona is said to be interested in Christian Pulisic because the USMNT star would like to play on loan elsewhere.
Could this be possible?
Mundo Deportivo reports that Pulisic is wanted in Barcelona. The Spanish giants are interested in loaning the USMNT winger. Pulisic could arrive in La Liga as early as January.
According to the report, Christian Pulisic would welcome the move and is Xavi’s top target for January’s transfer window.
What can we make of all this?
According to the report, Barcelona wants to sign Cesar Azpilicueta as well as Antonio Rudiger in free transfers this summer since both Chelsea defenders have been released from their contracts. Barcelona is now open to loans and free transfers due to its financial situation.
Pulisic may be mentioned in these discussions, along with the Pulisic section.
He will not face any competition from Chelsea if he travels to Barcelona. Barcelona is in the Europa League. This could prove to be a win-win scenario.
Chelsea is stacked for attack
Pulisic, 23, has been fit for several weeks but has not been able to make it into Thomas Tuchel’s starting lineup. He was an unutilized substitute in Saturday’s 3-2 win over Leeds United.
I was there for Chelsea’s win over Leeds United, and Pulisic did not come off the bench in the second period. Pulisic may have realized that he is below Mason Mount, Timo Werner, and Callum Hudson-Odoi on the depth chart.
American winger, who was popular at Chelsea, played a key part in the Champions League campaign last season. However, a long-term injury to his ankle and his absence this season due to positive COVID-19 testing have seen him fall in terms of attacking options.
Pulisic made three starts this season for Chelsea in all competitions, scoring two goals and one assist.
Is Barca a good short-term option?
Pulisic might spend 6 months playing at Barca week after week, in front of Sergio Dest, his USMNT teammate.
Although he will likely be reluctant to leave Chelsea for good, it may be the best option for him in the short term if he plays well.
He is currently a super sub at Chelsea, a position Thomas Tuchel admitted he enjoys. As Pulisic enters the peak of his career, will that suffice?
