Doubts have emerged over Christian Pulisic‘s future at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea begin their search for a potential replacement.
Christian Pulisic is certainly not having a good time at Chelsea since the arrival of their new boss, Thomas Tuchel. Pulisic is yet to start a game under the German manager and doubts have been cast over his future at the club. If Christian Pulisic presses for an exit this summer, Chelsea are looking for potential candidates who can replace the American forward.
According to Daily Mail, Kingsley Coman, who scored the winner against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final last season is one of the top names on the priority list for Chelsea. The English club have been interested in signing the Bayern Munich forward in the past. Coman was considered as a replacement for Callum Hudson-Odoi who was close to signing for Bayern Munich in 2019.
However, the Blues are ready to revive their interest in Coman if Pulisic decides to leave in the summer. There are several clubs who will be looking forward to signing Pulisic including the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich. Kingsley Coman has himself expressed his desire to play in England in the past.
Coman’s contract at Bayern runs out in June 2023, the Bundesliga leaders are keen on extending his contract to ensure that his value does not depreciate. However, if a deal is not reached soon enough, then the Bavarians can consider offloading the Frenchman, before his contract runs out. Coman is one of the most decorated players, winning league titles with PSG, Juventus and Bayern at the age of just 24.
Chelsea and Bayern Munich might consider a swap deal for Pulisic and Coman, which can benefit both the parties. Coman can get more playing time at Chelsea, whereas, Pulisic can embark on a new venture with the German giants in league where he made a name for himself in the past.
