- Pulisic to join Milan in €20m move
- USMNT star expected in Italy this week
- Loftus-Cheek confirmed imminent arrival
WHAT HAPPENED? United States international Pulisic has been linked with a move to the Serie A side for some time and a €20 million (£17m/$22m) transfer appears close to completion. Loftus-Cheek, who recently joined the Rossoneri from Chelsea, says he has already spoken to Pulisic and expects him to shine in Italy.
WHAT THEY SAID: "Christian Pulisic will arrive in Milan tomorrow. I spoke to Chris, he’s going do great things here at Milan," he told reporters in his first press conference as a Milan player.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Pulisic and Loftus-Cheek will be determined to make a success of their stints in the Italian top-flight after failing to secure regular spots in the Chelsea starting XI. Pulisic started just eight of the 24 Premier League matches in which he featured last season, while Loftus-Cheek made 19 starts in his 25 appearances.
