Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool are interested in a summer move for Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.

The American international has been linked with a summer transfer after just starting one Premier League game under Tuchel, the goalless draw against Leeds United on Saturday.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Pulisic has decided to ignore links to Manchester United and Liverpool as he wants to fight for his place at Chelsea.

“Christian Pulisic has always been respectful with Chelsea – great professional,” Romano tweeted.

“There’s interest from top clubs in case he’ll leave, normal for this kind of talent.

“But Pulisic is still fighting for Chelsea… and nothing will be decided before June.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has urged Pulisic to be patient.

“When you sign and play for Chelsea, it’s part of the job description to be patient and impatient at the same time,” Tuchel said.

“All of my players are competitors and they want to play very minute.

“At the same time, when you’re not selected, you have to stay patient and not lose confidence.

“When it was possible for him to start around Sheffield United and Barnsley, one game came too soon and Barnsley wasn’t easy.

“If you turn it around, it’s the duty of the players to show up and really earn to play. This is what Christian does.

“I feel him in the last days very positive and doing the very best in his situation.”
