Pulisic has ascertained one essential reason why Chelsea will regret transfer

After concluding his £15 million ($19.4 million) transfer from Chelsea to AC Milan at the end of June, Christian Pulisic has adapted well to life in Italy.

The former Chelsea star joined Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the capital, bringing to an end his four difficult years at Stamford Bridge. Pulisic, a 20-year-old destined for greatness in Europe, was acquired by the club for £58 million ($74 million).

The 24-year-old cost Milan three times less than Chelsea paid Borussia Dortmund after 145 appearances, 26 goals, and 21 assists. The transfer affords the USMNT star the chance to reestablish himself at the highest level, and he is expected to play a significant role in Stefano Piolo’s squad next season.

“My primary motivation for coming here is to start over and reach the highest level,” he said. In recent seasons at Chelsea, I was unable to perform at my peak, but now that I’ve moved on, I hope to regain my form.

During his tenure in England, Chelsea benefited from Pulisic’s strong American support. Now, AC Milan are relishing the massive support the USMNT player has in the United States.

Pulisic, according to journalist Joe Pompliano, is already contributing financially to Milan. In relation to Pulisic’s arrival, the club’s social media posts received 46 million impressions and 17 million video views.

The AC Milan team store’s merchandise and financial transactions increased by a staggering 266% overnight. In fact, ‘Captain America’s’ influence is so great that the club’s US customer base, which is typically around 9% of their overall sales, increased to 43% 23 hours after his transfer from Chelsea, with 90% of all customised Pulisic jerseys being sold to American customers.

According to the YouGov Football Index, AC Milan is the eighth largest club in the United States – larger than PSG, Atletico Madrid, and Juventus – having risen two spots in the last year since RedBird Capital took control. Pulisic’s transfer to the club could be the decisive factor that propels them to the top of American soccer.
