Christian Pulisic has been told he can leave the Chelsea this summer and Manchester United have registered an interest in taking him on loan, 90min understands.
Thomas Tuchel made it clear to a number of his forward players at Chelsea earlier this summer that they could leave the club, with Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, who have already left for former clubs Inter and RB Leipzig on loan, among the names available.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech and Pulisic are all free to leave too, with interest in each player from a number of other clubs. United have been linked with a move for Ziyech throughout the summer but have now asked about Pulisic’s availability as they seek a new option on the flanks.
Pulisic started just 13 league games last season and his standing within the squad has already been underlined after two substitute appearances so far this term.
With the World Cup coming in November, Pulisic is eager to secure regular football going into the finals in Qatar and he is now prepared to accept a loan exit.
90min understands a host of clubs have made contact with Chelsea to discuss a deal, and United are one of the clubs in contention to take the former Borussia Dortmund man.
Indeed it is understood Dortmund are one of those to look at him too, along with Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan and Newcastle.
Newcastle have asked Chelsea to be kept informed about Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi, Armando Broja and Conor Gallagher.
