Chelsea and Christian Pulisic are in mutual understanding that he will only leave in January for an outright sale.
Pulisic’s World Cup display have put Premier League clubs on alert for a potential winter market exit from Chelsea.
And both the Blues and its American star have agreed he will only leave for a cash sale, per the Daily Mail.
Manchester United and Newcastle both made inquiries in August and, along with Arsenal, are among those monitoring developments.
Chelsea is weighing up whether to cash in on the 24-year-old during the January window rather than allow his contract to run down to the final 12 months wherein his value would depreciate further.
The USA international has been lauded for displays against Wales and England in their opening Group B encounters and was FIFA’s man of the match following Friday’s 0-0 draw with Gareth Southgate’s men.
