Christian Pulisic, a member of the USMNT, has received a written offer from Lyon as well as AC Milan to join their teams.

The Athletic earlier today reported that AC Milan had made a verbal offer of €14 million (£12 million, $15.3 million) for the 24-year-old Chelsea winger.

Lyon, which made a second offer for Pulisic today, will be a fierce competitor.

The value of Lyon’s offer is €25 million (£21.5 million, $27.3 million), plus a significant sell-on clause that is still being worked out.

Chelsea would find the offer for Pulisic acceptable, therefore they are hesitant to let him leave for less.

Chelsea and Lyon have a great working relationship because to Malo Gusto’s January deal, and Chelsea likes the project that American owner John Textor is in charge of.

Milan has also developed a strong relationship with Chelsea in recent years, signing Ruben Loftus-Cheek this past week and Fikayo Tomori in the spring of 2021.

Milan and Pulisic have an agreement in place, and Milan and Chelsea now need to do the same. They have launched a proposal of €14 million (£12 million, $15.3 million) for the former Borussia Dortmund winger, who only has one year left on his Stamford Bridge deal. Chelsea places a larger value on the player than AC Milan’s opening bid, who is generating interest from other clubs.

The seven-time Champions League champions, who advanced to the same competition’s semifinals this year, have a number of candidates lined up for the same position.

Pulisic, who has 60 USMNT appearances under his belt, moved from Borussia Dortmund to Chelsea in January 2019.

In 145 games for Chelsea, he has scored 26 goals.
