According to reports, Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic is unhappy with Chelsea owner Todd Boehly for blocking his move away from the club this summer.

Chelsea permitted Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner to leave the club, but refused Pulisic from doing same.

A number of clubs across Europe were interested in snapping up Pulisic on loan, including Manchester United and Newcastle.

According to The Athletic, Pulisic was keen to extend his Chelsea contract to secure a loan move this season. Pulisic’s contract runs to 2024.

However, American owner Todd Boehly blocked any possible departure for Pulisic.

The 23-year-old is said to be unhappy with the club’s decision about leaving on loan.

Pulisic wants to leave Chelsea to get regular game time ahead of the upcoming World Cup.

The American star has played in all four of Chelsea’s games this season, but is yet to start a game.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has warned that there would be no excuse of lack of concentration from his players once the window is closed from September 2.

“They’re human, it’s a transfer window and they’re not only with us in Cobham,” Tuchel pointed out.

“Once they leave the building, they have their phones on and they will get calls and think about their future and their next step. There is a World Cup coming which everybody talks about and thinks about.

“I have accepted it is like this, and from the second of September there are no more excuses and no more distractions.

“We will have different leverage to push players and the commitment will have to be there 100 per cent. We will not accept 99, but the reality is in the last days of the transfer window you have to accept it, no matter what you wish for.”
