“The American winger has signed a contract with the Rossoneri until 30 June 2027, with an option to extend his stay until 30 June 2028,” read a statement from AC Milan.

“He has been capped 60 times for the American national team, scoring 25 goals for the USMNT and winning the CONCACAF Nations League twice.

What Chelsea said about Christian Pulisic

At 21 years old, Pulisic became the youngest Chelsea player to score a hat-trick in the English Premier League. He achieved the feat against Burnley in 2019. In 2021, Pulisic won the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea.

“Pulisic produced key moments during the run-in of Chelsea’s momentous 2020-21 season. He scored in the Champions League semi-final first leg against Real Madrid and created a goal for Mason Mount in the second leg. They were vital steps en route to our success in Porto,” read a statement from Chelsea.

“The UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup were won in Pulisic’s third season, and he also broke the record for the most Champions League goals scored by an American. The highlight of his final campaign came on the international stage as he guided the USMNT to the knockout stage of the 2022 World Cup.

“During his time at Chelsea, Pulisic played 145 games and scored 26 goals. He leaves with three winners’ medals.

“We wish Christian well and thank him for all his contributions during his time at the club.”
