Christian Pulisic admits he's yet to speak to Maurizio Sarri about Chelsea move

Chelsea's capture of Borussia Dortmund starlet Christian Pulisic for £58m has sparked a lot of debate.

The Blues announced the deal last Wednesday, revealing that the American will be loaned back to Dortmund for the remainder of the season.

Pulisic has featured mainly on the bench for the Bundesliga leaders this season due to the stunning form of Englishman Jadon Sancho.

It has led to claims that the Blues have overpaid for a player who's still incredibly raw and is yet to find much consistency.

Some others have claimed that a lot of it is down to marketing, with Pulisic the main gateway to the lucrative American market.

However, it does mean Chelsea will have a younger, more exciting option to offer competition to the likes of Willian and Pedro Rodriguez in 2019/20.

Maurizio Sarri did previously admit he was a fan of Pulisic, but the American made a rather alarming admission about the Italian manager when discussing his big-money move.

Apparently, the two are yet to have a conversation.

In an interview with ESPN, Pulisic is asked whether he has spoke with Sarri, to which he replies: "No, nothing like that. Like I said, I've been here and playing with Dortmund the whole time and I've been focused here, but I'll be really excited once the time comes."

Pulisic in action with the US

Sarri is known to not be interested in getting involved with transfer dealings, but it seems bizarre that he is yet to speak to a player that will be an integral part of his squad in the summer.

Pulisic then discussed where he thinks he will be utilised when he arrives at Chelsea.

The American said: "I think they definitely see me in one of the wider areas, but I think they also know that I can play kind anywhere across the attack. So I’m ready for wherever I need to be filled in really.”

He may have to get past Callum Hudson-Odoi in the pecking order when he arrives, unless Bayern Munich swoop in and sign the 18-year-old.
