Today’s USMNT rumors include Christian Pulisic being linked with AC Milan. Juventus are interested in Timothy Weah and Marseille wants to send Konrad de la Fuente out on loan.
USMNT rumors: Christian Pulisic to AC Milan
Christian Pulisic at a recent press conference was quoted on Sky Sports saying, “As of right now, I’m a Chelsea player and I plan to go back, but a lot of things can happen. A lot of things can change.”
He may get a chance under the new Blues manager Mauricio Pochettino. However, after four mixed years at Stamford Bridge, it looks to be the right time to move on. A fresh start in Italy could be on the cards for the USMNT forward.
Fabrizio Romano has reported that “Pulisic is expected to leave this summer as Chelsea is open to let him go. AC Milan is among clubs interested in Pulisic.”
Milan finished fourth in Serie A, so will have Champions League soccer next season. Pulisic needs to find a club where he can start playing regularly again and heading to the San Siro would be an attractive option.
USMNT rumors: Timothy Weah to Juventus
Pulisic may not be the only American moving to Italy this summer, as Timothy Weah has also been linked with a transfer to Serie A. According to Goal, “Weah may be on the verge of a sensational summer move to Serie A giants Juventus.
“With one year of his contract remaining the USMNT ace could be available for a cut-price fee of €10m (£8.6m/$10.7m). After attracting winter interest from Sevilla, Weah’s summer options appear to be boiling down to a choice between Olympique Marseille and Juventus.”
Weah spent much of the last Ligue 1 campaign playing for Lille as a right-back, he is naturally a forward but his versatility would be useful to any club. Moving to Juventus would be a more ambitious move than staying in France with Marseille. However, the player must ensure that he gets into the Old Lady’s team.
Weston McKennie did not always play at Juventus and ended up spending the second half of last season on loan at Leeds United. This could put Weah off from joining the Italian club.
USMNT rumors: Marseille to loan out Konrad de la Fuente
Konrad de la Fuente spent last season on loan from Olympique Marseille at Olympiacos. However, he made just five appearances in total for the Greek side. It looks like the player is set to be loaned out again.
MLS Transfers have revealed that “De la Fuente’s new agency has reached out to many La Liga and second-division Spanish clubs to see if they’re interested in taking him on loan from Marseille.”
The winger has three caps for the USMNT, although, he has not played for the Stars and Stripes in two years.
Being offered to teams in the Segunda Division is humbling for de la Fuente who started his career at Barcelona. He played for Barca in the Champions League but now needs to find a club where he can get regular game time.
