Chelsea star says ‘yes’ to Newcastle United move as Blues boss speaks out over his future

The winger has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge over the last year.

Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has reportedly indicated he will accept an offer to move to Newcastle United during the January transfer window.

Reports in Spain have suggested representatives of the American international have suggested the winger would be willing to move from West London to the North East if the Magpies can agree a deal with their Premier League rivals.  A report in TodoFichajes has suggested United are willing to part with around £35 to complete a move for a player they showed a keen interest in during the summer transfer window.

However, the report also states Chelsea are looking for a fee of around £56m to part ways with Pulisic.  The former Borussia Dortmund winger has endured a frustrating time since he moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2019 - but has been given some hope that he could earn regular game-time under newly-appointed Blues manager Graham Potter.

Pulisic has made three appearances under the former Brighton and Hove Albion boss but only one of them has come as part of his starting eleven.   There had been concerns the 24-year-old could be lacking match fitness by the time he travels to the World Cup Finals with the United States next month.  But Potter has urged the winger to be fit and ready if he is called upon over the coming weeks.

He told the Evening Standard: “I am not saying I am right all the time, I am not but somebody has got to make the call. With Christian, I would say he has been fantastic around the place, been really good with teammates, and contributed against Wolves.  He is pushing for a place, pushing for a start. Things change quickly in football and he needs to be ready.”

Newcastle are not the only club showing in interest in a deal for Pulisic, with the likes of Juventus, Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund also said to be monitoring the situation ahead of the January transfer window.
