The 24-year-old Pulisic has committed to a four-year contract with Serie A’s AC Milan, with the possibility of an additional year. Pulisic, who has already started training with his new team and head coach Stefano Pioli, was a key player for Chelsea, scoring 26 goals in 145 matches, including participating in the victorious 2021 Champions League final against Manchester City.
However, Pulisic found his opportunities dwindling at Stamford Bridge, having scored just once in his concluding season. In a news conference announcing his transfer, he confessed, “My final seasons with Chelsea were challenging. I didn’t receive the opportunities I desired for reasons unknown. But now, I’m thrilled with the chance to reboot my career and play for such a renowned team.”
Chelsea formally announced the transfer in a statement that read, “We extend our best wishes to Christian and express our gratitude for his numerous contributions during his tenure at the club.”
Pulisic made history in 2019 when he moved from Borussia Dortmund to Chelsea for £57.6m, becoming the highest-priced player from North America. Born in Pennsylvania, Pulisic has represented his country on the international stage 60 times.
In his new venture with Serie A, he reunites with ex-Chelsea colleague Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has also been transferred to Milan this summer.
Chelsea has seen several of its key players depart this summer, including Kai Havertz, who moved to Arsenal; Mateo Kovacic, who switched to Manchester City; and Mason Mount, who has transferred to Manchester United. Cesar Azpilicueta has secured a free transfer to Atletico Madrid, while Kalidou Koulibaly, Edouard Mendy, and N’Golo Kante have ventured into the Saudi Pro League, signing with Al-Hilal, Al-Ahli, and Al-Ittihad respectively.
