When the big clubs come knocking, it’s hard for any struggling player to turn them down. This has been the downfall for Chelsea many times in recent history, despite them being a big club themselves. Take Eden Hazard for example, once the best Blues player and now he’s rotting away in the football capital.
But there is always hope. When you treat a player right and give them all the reasons to stay, it can make all the interest seem redundant. This is thought to be the case with Christian Pulisic who has had Liverpool and Manchester United express interest.
However, according to a report from Express, Pulisic is willing to pledge his loyalty to Chelsea and fight for his place under Thomas Tuchel.

This should not come as too much of a surprise. From his Borussia Dortmund days, Pulisic knows exactly how much of a great manager Tuchel can be, hence why he was so excited to see him announced as Chelsea boss.
Tuchel’s expertise revolve around his magnificent work with young players and building them into the stars they oftentimes turn out to be under him.
The American prodigy has shown some fine bursts of form since signing for the Blues but he has unfortunately been unlucky with injuries until this point. That said, he will want to keep his head down and work on his fitness, something Tuchel and his medical team can help him with.
I’m certain that this level of trust will be reciprocated two ways. Actually, make that three. Both Tuchel and the Chelsea fanbase will have plenty of faith in Pulisic and they will respect his decision to shun interest and focus on continuing what he has been building since moving to Stamford Bridge.
Do you think Pulisic will stay at Chelsea for longer?
