Chelsea star is "destined" to join Man United in sensational transfer

Manchester United is Christian Pulisic's "destiny" according to a recent Calciomercato report.

The United States skipper has been linked in a move to Old Trafford previously but a move never came to fruition.

But it now being said that the "US offensive player is destined for Man United" according to the report from Italy.

ESPN have also claimed that Pulisic is on United's radar for the January transfer window but only if the player is available on a short loan deal.

The forward signed from Borussia Dortmund for Chelsea for a fee of £58million back in 2019.

Since then, his time at the Blues has been hit by injuries and as a result has only managed 26 goals and 21 assists in 133 appearances.

Gakpo or Pulisic?

Despite the club's decision to terminate Cristiano Ronaldo's contract last week, the club are not expected to make any substantial signings in January and instead keep the transfer budget for the summer.

The Pulisic situation could become an interesting one considering United are reportedly going to push hard in January for Cody Gakpo's signature.

Gakpo has been in incredible form at the World Cup, scoring in each of the Netherlands' group stage games.

The Dutch forward has already spoken Ten Hag, which he revealed earlier this year: "I was close to leaving. I spoke to Erik ten Hag a few times at Manchester United.

"In the end, the deal didn't go through, which is a shame, for me and my development, and because Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world. But also for PSV, because to transfer a player to Manchester United is a good thing for the club," he told The Times.

"It ended about a week before the end of the transfer window, and in that week I had to decide if I would go to Leeds or Southampton.

"In the end, I stayed, but it was a stressful period."
