Christian Pulisic has been linked with a move away from Chelsea at the end of the season, and Leeds United are thought to be keen on signing him.

According to a report from Fichajes, Christian Pulisic is considering his future at Chelsea. And Leeds United are keen to provide the United States international with an exit route along with Premier League rivals Newcastle United.

The 24-year-old has had a tough time at Stamford Bridge in recent months, and he has struggled to hold down a regular starting berth. Pulisic has started just three games in the Premier League and the Champions League combined.

The USMNT international needs to play regularly at this stage of his career, but it seems that he might have to leave Chelsea for that to happen. The player has been linked with a number of clubs in recent months, and it will be interesting to see whether Leeds can fend off the competition and secure his services.

Jesse Marsch is an admirer of Pulisic and could help the winger resurrect his career. There is no doubt that the former Borussia Dortmund attacker is a talented player, but he is clearly lacking in confidence and belief right now at Chelsea. That can only change with regular game time and backing from the manager, which could come at Leeds.

The report claims that Pulisic could be open to joining a club like Leeds if it can help him turn his career around. It will be interesting to see how much Chelsea demand for the 24-year-old in the upcoming windows. Leeds United do not have unlimited resources, and they might not be able to pull off the transfer if the asking price is unreasonable.

Furthermore, with Newcastle United interested in the player, it could result in a bidding war. The Magpies are the richest club in the world right now, and Leeds are unlikely to win a bidding war against them.

Both Newcastle and Leeds could be interesting moves for the winger. But the Magpies have a more ambitious project and are more likely to play European football in the coming years. A player of Pulisic’s quality could be tempted to move to St. James’ Park instead of Elland Road.
