AC Milan, the Italian football giant, has successfully negotiated a deal with Chelsea to acquire US star, Christian Pulisic. The deal’s total value could potentially reach €22 million, including an upfront fee of €20 million and an additional €2 million in add-ons. A significant sell-on clause has also been incorporated, which will come into play if Pulisic is transferred in the future.

This agreement follows AC Milan’s initial offer of $15.3 million, which was subsequently increased to secure Pulisic’s services. The American star has decided to leave Chelsea in pursuit of more regular playing time, especially as he prepares for key upcoming tournaments with the United States Men’s National Team.
