TRANSFER: Manchester United set to miss out on Christian Pulisic

Manchester United’s attempts to entice Christian Pulisic away from Chelsea have failed.

United approached Chelsea about a loan for the USA international last Wednesday, but the negotiations have been put on hold as they finalize the £70 million acquisition of Casemiro and pursue prospective deals for Ajax winger Antony and PSV Eindhoven’s Cody Gakpo.

TRANSFER: Manchester United set to miss out on Christian Pulisic

Chelsea were hesitant to loan Pulisic out on a temporary basis, preferring to sell, but they had backed down significantly, indicating a readiness to negotiate a prospective loan if the 23-year-old extended his contract first, thereby protecting their asset.

However, with United waiting to see what happens with Antony, Pulisic is said to have reconsidered his status and is now leaning towards staying at Stamford Bridge.

If he were to leave, he would prefer to join a team competing in the Champions League, but he is equally content to stay and compete for a spot under Thomas Tuchel.

Pulisic is always considered for games by Chelsea’s German coach, but his unhappiness stems from not getting enough starts.

Chelsea are considering loan offers for Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech in order to reduce competition for positions after they leave.

Chelsea is still interested in Everton’s Anthony Gordon and hopes to sign Barcelona’s Pierre Aubameyang, but Pulisic believes he can make an impact at Chelsea and is willing to see out the season before making a decision next summer.

Meanwhile, Everton insist that Anthony Gordon is not for sale.

Chelsea made an offer last week, but Goodison insiders say it was much lower than Tottenham’s earlier in the window.

Gordon has yet to sign the new deal given by Everton and is eager to leave the club, but he is seen as crucial to Frank Lampard’s plans.

Everton are nearing a loan agreement with Ajax offensive midfielder Mohammed Kudus, 22, while talks with Paris St. Germain midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye are ongoing.
