‘Saudi? No way.’
Chelsea striker Christian Pulisic is trying to shake off the lure of Saudi ‘oil money’. He believes he still has more to offer in Europe.
The U.S. international striker seemed to have established himself at Chelsea and was thriving, but he was unable to overcome stiff competition for places at the star-studded Blues. He scored just one goal in eight league starts last season.토토사이트
Pulisic is said to be attracting interest from Saudi Arabian clubs, but he is keen to remain in Europe, according to English outlet Football Insider. However, it is said that he will leave Chelsea this summer.
The Blues are planning to offload a number of players in order to comply with financial fair play and bring in new players. Even key players like Kai Havertz and Mason Mount have been linked with moves to rival clubs. Pulisic, who earns £150,000 a week, is at the top of the list.
Saudi clubs are aware of Chelsea’s situation and are tempting them. The calculation is that they can get their star players for a hefty transfer fee. N’Golo Kante has already confirmed his move to Saudi Arabia. Pulisic is also a Saudi target.
However, Pulisic may be more romantic than realistic. He wants to be more successful in Europe. Despite the astronomical salary he could earn if he chooses to go to Saudi Arabia.
