Christian Pulisic, USA men’s national team forward, might be bound for new adventures. Rumor has it he might get transferred to Manchester United. The star gave an incredible performance in the 2022 Qatar World Cup, and it seems he can make a great addition to one of England’s top football teams. The 24-year-old might have to say goodbye to Chelsea after a three-year career with the team.
When to Expect the Transfer
Most likely, the forward will be transferred during the January transfer window. ESPN’s Mark Ogden has commented on the potential event. He believes Christian Pulisic’s performance as part of the USA men’s national team has caught the eye of United’s managers. His versatility could prove more than useful for the team.
Erik ten Hag, United’s new manager, needs to find a suitable replacement for legendary forward Christiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo recently had his contract canceled by the club. Not long ago, the star No7 player gave an explosive interview where he made jaw-dropping comments about some of his teammates and the team in general, which caused his eventual dropout from United while he was out playing for the Portuguese national team.
Christian Pulisic and His Chelsea Struggles
That isn’t the first time Manchester United expressed interest in Christian Pulisic. Back in August, England’s top team expressed its desire for the talented forward when he reportedly complained about a considerable lack of playing time under Thomas Tuchel, then Chelsea manager.
Other teams who inquired about Pulisic included Newcastle United and several other Champions League clubs in Spain and Italy. Back then, however, Chelsea decided to keep the talented No10 player.
Christian Pulisic has stood out as one of the most crucial players in the USA men’s national team in the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Prominently, he assisted Tim Weah on the team’s goal in Group B against Wales.
