Leeds United are expected to sign Chelsea striker Christian Pulisic, with Sunday’s Premier League rivals willing to listen to offers – with Brenden Aaronson once calling him “magical” and “selfless”.
Pulisic, 23, fell to Chelsea this summer – following the signing of Raheem Sterling. The USMNT captain has played in both of Chelsea’s first Premier League games, but only as a substitute.
Reports claim that Chelsea are ‘willing to listen to offers’ for the former Dortmund star. Injuries and competition saw him play just 117 games in three-and-a-half years – only 73 of which came in the starting lineup.
Leeds, Newcastle and Manchester United are believed to be among his suitors, as are several clubs from the continent. Speaking about Pulisic after assisting in the 3-0 win over Morocco in the summer, Aaronson was full of praise.

“It was Christian magic. And for him to sacrifice himself like he did and give me the ball and hit it, it was great,” Aaronson said, after the Chelsea and US captain had Aaronson’s chance to drive home against Morocco in June.
Leeds in mix for Pulisic: Aaronson calls him ‘magical’
What an amazing signing Pulisic would be for Leeds. The temptation will certainly be there, for two reasons. First, the fact that Jesse Marsch is in charge, America’s gaffer – and the presence of two of his USMNT teammates.
Aaronson, and Tyler Adams. The second is that, before the World Cup in Qatar when the USA faces England, Pulisic needs playing time. At Leeds, he will be one of the first names on the team sheet.
But there are two big problems surrounding the deal, too. Pulisic will be expensive, any format of the deal. Even on loan, his wages are a whopping £150,000 a week, and Leeds will have to pay a percentage.
Second, Pulisic has interest from Champions League clubs. That would seem very tempting, if he can find a club that will give him more game time than he gets at Chelsea. There is a lot to think about the Chelsea ace.
