Chelsea boss Graham Potter has insisted Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic won’t leave the club this month and he had no plans to sell the USA star before he got injured.
Pulisic will be out for two months with a knee injury in Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat by Manchester City on January 5. After struggling for playing time at the start of the season, he made three straight starts after the World Cup before getting hurt.
Speaking on Friday, Potter said: “No chance (of Pulisic leaving), no,. ‘There was never any consideration of anything about that anyway but he’s a couple of months.
“He’s disappointed but he’s optimistic that he can come back quicker than the two months so he’s in that phase where he’s just trying to keep his fingers crossed and hopefully his rehab goes well.”
Newcastle and Manchester United had both been linked with moves for the 24-year-old.
