Christian Pulisic set to ‘lead’ $82m triple Chelsea transfer swap Todd Boehly would love

Christian Pulisic could lead the mass exodus of Chelsea stars this summer as Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital plan a large scale clearout before they turn to bringing in this summer. It is a fact brought about not just due to the bloated squad, potential financial ramifications and new manager sales, but also out of necessity.

The Blues have been carrying the weight of underperforming and overpaid players for several seasons and, if nothing else, the recent year of turmoil has only proven how badly the squad was in need of a total reset. It doesn’t make for good reason for most of the players currently on the books.

Finding new destinations for those that have no future at Stamford Bridge past this season is a task that will prove trickier in reality, though. Due to high wages, mammoth costs and lack of monetary firepower across Europe it has been hard to flog stars that haven’t made it in the Premier League.

As has been shown by the willingness to allow Marcos Alonso, Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Jorginho all to leave before now, it isn’t impossible and one that Pulisic may well end up paving the way for. The American is amongst the more sellable assets at Chelsea due to his age, 24, and marketability as a USMNT star.

He has proven himself as a top-tier European talent as well with impressive showings in the Champions League. Milan have previous interest in him and earlier this month former teammate Olivier Giroud opened dialogue for a move once more.

“I think everyone would like it. He’s a big name in Europe, so that would help us,” he told CBS Sports Great Goal. “He is that kind of player with great skills, with great talent. He is a cheerful boy, always smiling.

“We laughed a lot with him. Our understanding on the pitch was also excellent, a bit like with Eden Hazard, even though I played less with Christian. We knew how to find each other.”
