“He’s just not going to get the minutes that would equate to big numbers” – USMNT legend Eric Wynalda urges Christian Pulisic to leave Chelsea and join surprise Premier League club

United States men’s national team (USMNT) legend Eric Wynalda believes Newcastle United could be a good place to land for Christian Pulisic if he leaves Chelsea.

Newcastle’s ‘right offer’ could tempt Pulisic into a move, according to journalist Ben Jacobs (via The Shields Gazzette). However, a lot could depend on his performance at this winter’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Pulisic is expected to play a leading role for the USMNT at the flagship event. However, a lot has been made about his lack of playing time at Chelsea this season. He has only started twice for his club in all competitions and has completed just 255 minutes in 10 appearances.

Wynalda, who has made 106 appearances for the Stars and Stripes, believes Pulisic won’t get too much action at Stamford Bridge going forward. He suggested that a move to Newcastle in January could do the opposite, saying (quoted by football.london):

“He will lose a lot of quality if he stays at Chelsea. He just won’t get the minutes that would equal big numbers. I think if he makes a move after the World Cup in January I’ll lean more towards Newcastle.”

Wynalda added that the Magpies would be a better fit for Pulisic as a team that isn’t as adventurous:

“Things I’m hearing about the money they’re going to inject are interesting. I don’t think so [United], for example, would be a good place for him. This is not a team that scores a lot of goals.”

Pulisic has been benched by Chelsea boss Graham Potter in three of their last four games in all competitions. In the other game, however, he got an advantage against Wolverhampton Wanderers and scored the second goal in the 3-0 league win.


Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic will be key for the USMNT at the 2022 FIFA World Cup

Christian Pulisic was one of the driving forces behind USA’s return to the group stage of the FIFA World Cup. The Chelsea forward was fantastic in qualifying and is an important part of their team.

Pulisic has won 52 caps for the Stars and Stripes, scoring 21 goals and providing 12 assists. He is expected to lead the team in Qatar alongside other young stars such as Brenden Aaronson, Weston McKennie, Sergino Dest and Josh Sargent.
