Chelsea Receive Positive News Amidst Transfer Ban: Big Boost For Sarri?

In a recent report, Football.London has confirmed that Chelsea’s FIFA ban for the next two transfer windows won’t affect Christian Pulisic’s transfer to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

The same source has also revealed that the Pensioners will be able to acquire the Bundesliga prospect’s services at the end of this campaign as they had already agreed on a deal in January so, in simpler terms, he is currently a Chelsea player playing on loan at Dortmund. Thus, Maurizio Sarri won’t have any problems incorporating him in his first-team next season.

This recent revelation will be a big boost for Chelsea after a difficult few weeks in the club’s history. Sarri’s men have had their fair share of struggles on the pitch as they have fallen off the pace in the Premier League after making a glorious start to this campaign.

In contrast, Pulisic has recently had a change in fortunes as he has started to find a bit of joy on the pitch. The United States international managed to score Dortmund’s third goal after coming off the bench against Stuttgart on Saturday. Pulisic’s return to form will also come as a positive bit of news for Chelsea fans especially after the US player had such an inconsistent season at Dortmund in this campaign.

Pulisic has featured in 24 matches for the Bundesliga outfit this term, scoring five goals while creating five assists across all competitions. However, he has made only 14 appearances in the league which will be a cause for concern. Lucien Favre has preferred to use players such as Marco Reus, Jadon Sancho and Raphaël Guerreiro over the US talent this season.

The Hershey born prospect’s lack of form could be due to his inexperience as he is still only 20 and will need time to unlock his real potential. Sarri would hope that Pulisic will be able to find his goal-scoring touch at Stamford Bridge especially after suffering the setback of not being able to recruit new players in the next two transfer periods.

Only time will tell whether Pulisic will be able to live up to the high expectations that come with playing in the English top-flight. But one thing’s for sure; his availability has given the Pensioners some hope that they will be able to improve as a team next season.
