An insight into the current mindset of Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has been provided on Monday evening.
The name of wide-man Pulisic, of course, has taken its place front and centre in the media headlines across the summer to date.
This comes with the former Borussia Dortmund talent, fresh off something of an underwhelming campaign in 2022/23, having been heavily tipped for a Stamford Bridge exit.
Chelsea have added to their options out wide in impressive fashion this summer, courtesy of the signing of Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.
In turn, murmurs had begun to spread that Pulisic could be moved on, amid the prospect of yet further reduced game time over the weeks and months ahead.
If the latest word stemming from the media on Monday evening is anything to go by, however, then, in fact, such a possibility appears to have been all but ruled out.
Ahead of Thursday’s fast-approaching transfer deadline, the decision is understood to have been made for Pulisic to remain on the books in west London for at least another year.
This is according to Paul Tenorio of The Athletic, who has confirmed that Thomas Tuchel and co. have rejected the chance to farm the United States international out on loan.
Pulisic himself is said to have been left altogether ‘disappointed’ by such a call, keen to secure more consistent playing time over the course of the season ahead.
