Chelsea shocked the Premier League earlier this week when they announced the signing of Christian Pulsiic. However, they also shocked Chelsea fans – in a bad way – by also confirming that Pulisic would remain with Dortmund until the end of the season.
Of course, the Blues have had a very mixed campaign so far, and some fresh faces like Pulisic could have helped to freshen things up, but alas, Chelsea had other ideas.
This is a decision that has drawn the ire of fans, and with good reason. We recently asked Chelsea fans whether they’re angry about the delay to Pulisic’s arrival, and a whopping 74% of those polled have revealed that they are.
Now, of course, Dortmund may have been willing to charge Chelsea less in favour of a short-term loan, but still, does this make much sense for the Blues? Is saving a few million really worth losing out on him for half a season?
Clearly, fans think that it’s not, and that’s where the anger is clearly coming from.
With Willian struggling and Chelsea overreliant on Eden Hazard, a new winger would have been the perfect acquisition, yet the Blues have decided otherwise, and that’s clearly a point of frustration.
