Alexi Lalas and David Mosse decide which membership they consider can be the very best match for USMNT and Chelsea Winger Christian Pulisic.

5. AC Milan

In January, Spanish outlet Marca reported that Italian giants AC Milan have been involved in assembly with Chelsea’s board over a switch for Pulisic. While it is unclear if that assembly ever occurred, Milan can be an ideal place for Pulisic to get a contemporary begin.

“It’s not the AC Milan of the 80s or 90s — we all understand that,” Lalas stated. “It’s not even the AC Milan of 10 or 20 years ago. Having said that, there is opportunity, and I think the way the game is played and the type of player he is, Christian Pulisic — at his best — can be [Alessandro] Del Piero-esque.

4. Leeds United

Even after sacking Jesse Marsch, the American affect at Leeds United remains to be robust with USMNT stars Tyler Adams, Brenden Aaronson and Weston McKennie. Could Pulisic be the subsequent American to affix the membership lovingly nicknamed by followers as “Leeds United States”? It’s a chance.

“He’s got his friends there, he’s got that American connection there,” Lalas stated. “It would be a very, very different environment because no matter what happens, I think Leeds is going to continue to be this team that struggles each and every year to be a medium-sized team in the EPL, but there might be a comfort in that, and that step down may provide him to do some different things.”

3. Atlético Madrid

Atlético Madrid look like headed for an overhaul with star attacker João Félix on mortgage at Chelsea and supervisor Diego Simeone on the recent seat. Under the appropriate set of circumstances, Pulisic might flourish with one of many largest golf equipment in Spain.

“The general style of La Liga would suit him more than maybe the rough and tumble style of the EPL ,” Lalas stated. “My caveat there would be: if he’s getting berated every week Simeone and playing outside back. I’d hate to see him go to La Liga, play for Atlético Madrid and just get down and dirty instead of using his God-given talents.”

2. Newcastle United

Newcastle and Chelsea have reportedly held discussions over Pulisic in every of the final two switch home windows however nothing got here to fruition.

“With the way that they play — or the way they want to play — I think he is a welcome addition,” Lalas stated. “It’s not the highest level where you’ve got that type of pressure; it’s not your Man City, it’s not your Liverpool even though they’re struggling right now. The pressure wouldn’t be as great, and he gets to stay in the EPL and be part of that project. He represents the skill, ability and talent that is that next level for Newcastle.”

1. Real Madrid

A rumor from the DailyMail has had U.S. followers dreaming of Christian Pulisic in a Real Madrid jersey. On one hand, Real Madrid has no scarcity of attacking expertise, significantly on the wing with Brazilian stars Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo, so Pulisic would not get the enjoying time he would at a number of the different golf equipment he is been linked to.

On the opposite hand, it is Real Madrid, arguably the most important membership on the earth.

“Part of me says it’s an offer you can’t refuse: it’s Real Madrid. Christian Pulisic has made plenty of money, he will continue to make plenty of money, so he doesn’t necessarily have to go places because of the money, and if he went to Real Madrid he would still make lots of money. But I think it represents so much. I think it’s the culmination of the project that is Christian Pulisic if this were to come to be and if Real Madrid was actually interested in Christian.”
