Christian Pulisic will NOT be heading to AC Milan despite reports as the American recovers from injury… but the Blues will consider departures after their sensational £184m January splurge
- Pulisic has seemingly moved further down the pecking order during January
- Though the American will not be going anywhere in the current transfer window
- Pulisic sustained a knee injury during the Blues’ 1-0 loss to Man City on Jan. 5
- The signings of Mykhailo Mudryk and others have further hindered his chances
Christian Pulisic is not expected to join AC Milan in the January transfer window despite reports the American star may be heading to the Serie A champions.
While Chelsea are considering selling players from their bloated squad following their £184million January transfer splurge so far – which followed an outlay of more than £270m – Pulisic is set to stay at Stamford Bridge.
It was reported by Marca that Milan had set the wheels in motion for a potential move, with the board beginning negotiations in an attempt to secure his signature.

Pulisic is currently injured and is expected to remain so far at least another month. The injury occurred during the Blues’ 1-0 loss Manchester City on January 5.
The American, 24, was substituted after just 22 minutes, and Chelsea boss Graham Potter revealed on Wednesday that the player could be out of action until March.
The American appeared to get hurt from a strong John Stones challenge that may have prevented a goal as Pulisic was latching onto a ball in the box.
‘Christian is [out for] a couple of months we think,’ Potter said following the injury.

The timing could not be worse for the ex-Dortmund star, with Todd Boehly sanctioning another spending spree this month.
The Blues have so far spent £184m on six signings, while they have also agreed a £63m deal to sign Christopher Nkunku, who will arrive in the summer from RB Leipzig.
The Frenchman’s addition, alongside that of electric Ukrainian Mykhailo Mudryk and PSV’s English starlet, Noni Madueke, could push Pulisic even further down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
