Rumours surfaced yesterday surrounding the potential of Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic leaving the club this summer, after he has had to make do with minutes off the bench only so far under Thomas Tuchel.
The American international has struggled with on and off injuries during his short Chelsea career, and now there are doubts being cast over his future, in particular from yesterdays report from the reliable transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano.
What is the latest on Chelsea’s centre back situation? Potential new deals for Antonio Ruidger and Andreas Christensen? Interest in Kurt Zouma? Get the latest report here.
Whilst this is largely speculative at this point in the season being many matches left yet for it to be turned around, I was keen to engage and find out some Chelsea fans views on the situation in the form of a poll.
I perhaps could have worded it wiser, with many saying they would sell Christian Pulisic, but only if he wanted to leave and if we have a replacement coming in.
However, the overall decision from Chelsea fans is still fairly unanimous, with 85.2% out of 12,751 voters choosing to keep Pulisic this summer, and just 14.8% wanting him sold.
For an article – I want Christian Pulisic…

Personally I believe he can turn things around at Chelsea and he has a lot of talent. If he can stay fit and have a decent run in the team from now until the end of the season then I believe we may see a different story altogether.
However, if the injury and form struggles continue, and he wants to leave the club, then I believe we will have no option but to allow him to go. We should only want players at this club that want to be here.
The potential replacements are already being talked about, but let’s not be hasty, and let’s remember just how good an in-form Christian Pulisic can be and has been on many occasions in Chelsea blue so far.
