Report: Pulisic joining AC Milan after Chelsea accept bid

Christian Pulisic is leaving Chelsea.

The United States star will spend the next chapter of his career in Italy after Chelsea accepted an improved bid from AC Milan worth €20 million plus add-ons, according to transfer insider Fabrizio Romano.

Pulisic was pushing to join Milan since Monday after previously agreeing to terms with the Serie A club.

Despite interest from a Lyon team that reportedly tabled a €25-million bid for the 24-year-old winger, Pulisic is understood to have his heart set on joining Milan.

Milan launched a €14-million bid for Pulisic that Chelsea rejected last week. The Italian club returned with a revised offer Wednesday.

The successful bid could end up being worth €22 million in total if add-ons are achieved, Romano reported Thursday.

Pulisic is expected to undergo a medical and finalize his contract before officially being unveiled as a new AC Milan player.

His former Chelsea teammate Ruben Loftus-Cheek joined the Rossoneri last week in a transfer reportedly worth €20 million.
