The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino to the Chelsea bench comes to revolutionise a team that has failed in almost all the competitions where it participated, being also one of the most criticised for the way of spending money on transfers without being able to reach the finals and being humiliated by Real Madrid in their last official match in Europe.

Frank Lampard, who was able to lift the UEFA Champions League trophy as a player, did not function in the same way as manager of the team and, although he tried to save a sinking ship, the Londoners stagnated and will only be able to play locally, which does not make it easier to find good players for next season.

However, there are other players who have started to move on to other teams in order to alleviate the wage bill. Something that had certainly not been planned for and which was upset when a player as expensive as Enzo Fernandez, who had been a sensation at Benfica but not so much on his arrival in England, arrived.

One element of the squad has been singled out, in particular, as part of the problem with the Pensioners' poor campaign. Christian Pulisic has failed to live up to the expectations of the fans and the management and perhaps the time is right to make drastic decisions about his future. Maybe even affect his call-up to the U.S. national team on the field.

What will happen to Pulisic in the coming months?

Pulisic tops the list of 15 players who are on the verge of not staying with Chelsea for the next Premier League season. They are reportedly looking to find him a move elsewhere in Europe. The American midfielder could only score one goal and provide two assists in 30 games. So Pochettino analyzes his continuity and if he is a valuable element to continue taking him into account.
