MANCHESTER UNITED and Liverpool are on red alert with Christian Pulisic growing increasingly frustrated at Chelsea, according to reports.
The American star, 22, spent nine months convincing Frank Lampard he was worthy of a starting spot at Stamford Bridge.

The winger is yet to start under Tuchel and has played just 134 of a possible 810 minutes under the German – who gave him his big break at Borussia Dortmund.
Now, the Mail claim Pulisic could look to move on after starting on the bench during the 2-0 win over Everton.
Man Utd and Liverpool were BOTH keen on the forward before agreeing to join Chelsea in January 2019.
Ex-United scout Jorge Alvial also begged the club to sign Pulisic when he was just 13 years old.
And the fierce rivals could both reignite their interest this summer with both clubs desperate for some star quality on the wing.
United are also keen on Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho in their bid to bring in some natural width.
Liverpool may need to replace one or both of title-winning forwards Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
And the Reds will hope Pulisic’s relationship with Klopp from their time together at Borussia Dortmund will help them win the race, with the American in the youth squad under the German’s leadership.
After the victory at Stamford Bridge Tuchel admitted it was ‘unfair’ on Pulisic to be left on the bench purely because of his ability to change a game as an impact sub.
The German boss said: “I can say nothing else but good things about him.
“Maybe his biggest problem is that I know him from Dortmund and I think he started only in the cup games.
“It is my responsibility and it is a bit unfair but I know what impact he can have in the last 20 or 30 minutes.
“He was a bit unlucky in the last few games.
“It isn’t a lack of trust or quality, it is just that he will have to be patient.”
