Pulisic to cut short summer break for Chelsea preseason tour

Christian Pulisic plans to cut short his summer break to join up with his new Chelsea teammates for preseason.

The 20-year-old is currently away with USA competing in the Concacaf Gold Cup.

The London Evening Standard says Chelsea have a policy of allowing talent involved in summer international fixtures to have extended time off to compensate.

But Pulisic is considering not taking much of a vacation at all, even if the USA go on to lift the Gold Cup.

Chelsea depart for a pre-season tour in Japan just over a week after the showpiece occasion and the attacking midfielder is looking to be on the trip.
