AC Milan close deal for 2nd Chelsea star


AC Milan have, on Friday, sealed a deal to bring a long-time member of the attacking setup at Premier League giants Chelsea to Serie A.

The Blues star in question? Christian Pulisic.

Ongoings between the respective powers that be at Chelsea and Milan have of course taken their place front and centre in the headlines over the course of the last week.

This comes after a lengthy saga ultimately culminated in the latter striking a deal, to bring Ruben Loftus-Cheek to San Siro with a view to next season.

If the latest word doing the rounds in the media on Friday evening is anything to go by, however, then discussions between Milan and Chelsea remain in full swing.

This comes amid confirmation that the Rossoneri have struck a deal for a 2nd Blues star, the aforementioned Christian Pulisic.

Amid an ongoing search for reinforcements out wide, United States international Pulisic has long been identified as a prime summer target on the part of the board at San Siro.

After an initial €14 million plus bonuses bid was rejected by their counterparts at Stamford Bridge, Milan, in turn, returned with an improved offer, understood to come in around the €20 million mark.

And this, it would appear, has done the trick.

As per a report from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, a ‘deal [is] in place between clubs as Chelsea accepted conditions of final bid’.

With the personal terms of a contract having already been agreed upon between the parties, Pulisic is therefore primed to fly out to Lombardy, ahead of undergoing his Milan medical and putting pen to paper on a long-term contract with Stefano Pioli’s side.
