[NEWS] Christian Pulisic speaks out over Chelsea exit links

Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has , on Friday, spoken out over the
speculation surrounding his future at Stamford Bridge.

Struggles at the Bridge
United States international Pulisic has of course endured
something of a hit and miss season to date.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund man, on the back of a fine campaign
last time out, was widely expected to kick on to establish himself
as one of Chelsea’s key performers this time around.

Such a development, though, has since failed to come to fruition.
Amid a combination of fitness problems, competition for places
and a simple lack of form, Pulisic has managed starts in less than
half of the Blues’ Premier League outings to this point in the

‘Obviously happy’
The 22-year-old has enjoyed an upturn in production of late, and of
course netted the crucial opener in Chelsea’s Champions League
semi-final first-leg showdown with Real Madrid.

The return meeting at Stamford Bridge, however, saw Pulisic
dropped back to the bench, a call which the wide-man later
admitted to being ‘very frustrated’ with.

Rotation has proven particularly heavy since the arrival of Thomas
Tuchel on the bench in west London, with the likes of Hakim
Ziyech, Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Kai Havertz, Olivier
Giroud and Tammy Abraham all vying it out with Pulisic for a
starting berth in attack.

In turn, it did not come as a massive surprise when, last month,
speculation began to spread that the American was giving serious
consideration to seeking out a summer transfer, in search of more
regular playing time.

As outlined above, though, on Friday, Pulisic has moved to pour
cold water on reports linking him with a Stamford Bridge exit.

During an interview with ESPN, the gifted attacker was asked
whether he remains happy at Chelsea, and went on to explain:
‘Yeah, I’m obviously happy here. It has been an incredible two

‘People have always doubted and said: ‘Oh, he’s not playing, does
he want to go here, does he want to go there?’ I’m always up for a
challenge, I love competing, I love the position I’m in and I’m
enjoying my time here.’
