Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic has touched down in Milan to undergo his medical before signing a deal that will give Chelsea £20million.

The American will now link up with former teammates Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Fikayo Tomori as well as the evergreen Olivier Giroud.

French side Lyon had shown interest in Pusliic but the United States forward made it clear that he was only interested in a move to the Italian giants Milan.

The move will see him bring an end to what has been underwhelming the last two years at Chelsea, mainly due to injury and in some instances just lack of form and trust from his managers.

The Italian club posted a message on their Twitter handle with the message “See you soon” while Pulisic himself said: “Hi AC Milan supporters, I’ve just arrived in Milan, so excited to be here and can’t wait to get started.”

There has been a feeling within the Chelsea fanbase that Pulisic just did not fulfil the enormous potential he showed when he first arrived from Dortmund and with Chelsea looking to go a different direction, saying goodbye now might be in the best interest of both player and club.

Chelsea are also currently in discussion with Inter Milan for the sale of their highest-paid player Romelu Lukalu with the Blues still holding out for at least £40m, ironically Chelsea paid £97.5million for his services in 2021 and he spent last season helping Inter Milan reach the final of the Champions League, only losing to Manchester City.
