Pulisic joined Chelsea in 2019 and has struggled with injuries since then. He hasn’t missed a lot of matches though but always seems to be recovering from a knock or worse. Nevertheless, there have been several moments where he has shown his class in England.

It would be interesting to see if the Premier League club will extend Pulisic’s contract beyond the summer of 2024.

Of course, I still have years left on my contract. I’m feeling good, I’m happy here. Currently, I am enjoying my football and I’m just going to finish the season out strong. That’s not something exactly I’m worried about right now,” Pulisic said.

He is not the only Chelsea player with contract issues, as defenders Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, and Andreas Christensen will all be free agents next season. Moreover, it has been widely reported that Christensen has already signed for FC Barcelona.

The primary reason why several of Chelsea’s stars are worried about their contracts is because of the sanctions placed on the club. Former owner Roman Abramovich had his assets frozen by the UK government because of his links to the Russian parliament.

Chelsea were caught in the crossfire and now cannot sign new players, or even extend the contract of their current ones. They are trying to find new owners to resolve this crisis and it should all work out well in a few months for the club.
