Report: AC Milan are now using Tonali funds to compete with Newcastle and sign ‘great talent’

AC Milan are already in the process of reinvesting the money from Sandro Tonali’s transfer to Newcastle United in rival Eddie Howe for Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.

This is acc TuttoMercato WEB, which reports that Tonali leaving San Siro has given the Serie A side an opportunity to spend money. Therefore, AC Milan have started direct talks about a move from Pulisic to Italy. It is highly likely that he will leave Chelsea as part of Mauricio Pochettino’s summer rebuild.

Tonali is on track to join Newcastle as his transfer from AC Milan is practically a done deal. That’s why San Siro bosses have turned their attention to potential newcomers and made Pulisic a prime target. His place on the Rossoneri’s shopping list is growing fast.

AC Milan are currently in direct talks about Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic

However, AC Milan is wasting no time as San Siro bosses are already working on using the transfer fee from Tonali’s transfer to Newcastle to sign Pulisic from Chelsea. The Rossoneri are keen to persuade the American to move to Italy. His career in west London is now practically over.

Pulisic also appears to have accepted that his time at Stamford Bridge is over. the athlete reported in early June that Pulisic wants to leave Chelsea and is willing to take a pay cut. The winger was unhappy with his lack of chances in the 2022/23 season and could opt for £20m.

Chelsea’s price can easily tempt Newcastle to promote their interest in Pulisic’s transfer. 90 mins reported in February that the 24-year-old is on Howe’s shortlist. Dean Jones also referred to Newcastle’s interest in Chelsea’s Pulisic, who they could now help sign for AC Milan.

Olivier Giroud has also backed Pulisic’s transfer to AC Milan. France’s all-time top scorer told CBS Sports via: Sports media set, in May: “He is a big name in Europe. So he would help us. He’s a player with great skills [and] with great talent.”
