Chelsea transfer news: Real Madrid to lose Christian Pulisic battle if one thing happens
Chelsea and Real Madrid have both been linked with Pulisic, whose Borussia Dortmund future is shrouded in uncertainty.
The USA international could leave the Westfalenstadion for a new challenge elsewhere with the Bundesliga giants willing to cut him loose.
Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign Pulisic with the future of Eden Hazard also far from certain.
The Belgium international has been linked with Barcelona but Real Madrid are favourites to snap him up in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo’s shock move to Juventus.
And Transfermarketweb say Chelsea will beat Real to Pulisic if the La Liga side manage to sign Hazard.
The Chelsea player has not hid his desire to uproot to the Bernabeu, recently saying: “Does Real make me dream less without Zidane?
“Zidane is someone special, it’s true, but I think Real is everyone’s dream.”
A move has become a lot more likely since Ronaldo chose to join Juventus in a £105million deal earlier this month.
Los Blancos have Hazard on a list of transfer targets that also includes Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski.
And, if they manage to sign the 27-year-old from Chelsea, then Transfermarketweb suggest Pulisic would be beyond Real’s reach.
The American youngster, still just 19, has been priced at a huge £65million.
But where he ends up remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, Pulisic has been urged to resist Chelsea and Real to join Liverpool instead.
The Reds have also been linked with the teenager, and ESPN pundit Paul Mariner said: “It’s very attractive to go to Liverpool. I just think he’s got to be careful of where he goes. This is a very important move.
“If he goes to Chelsea, what happens generally to players that go to Chelsea? They get sent out on-loan again.
“Can he break into the side? Can he take (Eden) Hazard’s spot? Of course he can’t. Can he take Willian’s spot? No. He’s not going to play him through the middle.
“The people looking after him have got to be very, very careful.”
