Christian Pulisic set to join Blues in £60m deal from Borussia Dortmund… and Callum Hudson-Odoi could exit


BLUES PUL-L

Maurizio Sarri has won the battle to sign the 20-year-old, who made it clear he wanted to sign for the Blues

Chelsea will complete a £60m deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic, according to reports.

The Mail on Sunday claim Pulisic, 20, will join the Bundesliga leaders next summer – although a deal could be announced as early as next month.

While news of the American signing represents good news for the Blues, they may be dealt a major blow by losing one of their highly-rated youngsters.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, 18, continues to be pursued by Bayern Munich – with his current contract set to expire in the summer of 2020.

Pulisic’s arrival will send him further down the pecking order, with his pathway to the first team already blocked.

RB Leipzig and Monaco are also keeping tabs on the forward, who if he runs down his contract would be sold for just £2m – owing to UEFA’s minimal compensation rules.

Therefore the Blues may have a big decision to make in January regarding Hudson-Odoi’s long-term future at Stamford Bridge.

The youngster, whose four appearances this season have come in the Europa League, could be sold for up to £25m next month.

In order for the Blues to back Sarri in January, as well as running in compliance with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules, they will need to consider any offers for his services.

While Sarri insists he wants Hudson-Odoi to remain at the club, Willian, Pedro and Eden are all ahead of him in the pecking order.
